SuSE 11.1 is using this and Perl-Tk's widget is ok. (one of my tests)
is it really Perl-Tk or perl itself?
when looking at other perl related threads i tried to rebuild perl
at least with -O2 instead of -O3 (see perl -V)
but did not succeed at all.
in 1.7: cd /usr/src/perl-5*:
try 1) our restrictive company firewall is blocking rsync.
(huh -- using variable source from outside for production?)
try 2) compiling @home i get the following error:
/usr/bin/ln.exe -s cygwin/cygwin.c
`sh cflags "optimize='-O3'" cygwin.o` cygwin.c
CCCMD = gcc -DPERL_CORE -c -DPERL_USE_SAFE_PUTENV
fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -O3 -Wall -W -Wextra
cygwin.c: In function `utf8_to_wide':

cygwin.c:170: error: previous definition of 'wlen' was here

make: *** [cygwin.o] Error 1
maybe someone has a -02 build for perl and may check for widget please?
