Confirmed. Once I fixed my perl environment I had no problems compiling WeeChat with perl support.

I think you're right. The issue is my perl environment. Once I get things fixed up I'll re-open this if the issue persists.

Yes I do believe /usr/local/lib is where Perl goes by default on CentOS.

[xxxxxx@localhost ~]$ which perl

[xxxxxx@localhost perl5]$ pwd
[xxxxxx@localhost perl5]$ ls -la
total 16
drwxr-xr-x   4 root root 4096 Nov 27 09:46 .
drwxr-xr-x.  9 ntop ntop 4096 Nov 27 09:46 ..
drwxr-xr-x  59 root root 4096 Nov 27 09:46 5.18.1
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Nov 27 09:46 site_perl

I'll have to do a quick VM build to confirm. I do remember a little while ago mucking with Perl and I wonder if I've broken something.

I'm not sure this is a WeeChat problem, because the error says:

/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.18.1/x86_64-linux/CORE/libperl.a: could not read symbols: Bad value

which is not a WeeChat file, but from your perl install.

Is it normal that your perl is in /usr/local/lib and not /usr/lib/ ? Is it the standard CentOS perl install ?

Running CentOS 6.5 64-bit with Perl 5.18.1.

When running 'make' I get the following:
