cpan gives ReadKey.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Tstack_sp_ptr

After upgrade to perl 5.10 running cpan failed with the error:

ReadKey.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Tstack_sp_ptr

On a hunch I ran cpan -r which man tells me:

-r Recompiles dynamically loaded modules with CPAN::Shell->recompile.

Seems to have fixed the issue.

What did I just do? hmm

It looks like one of your modules needed rebuilt against the latest perl version.  I think ReadKey.so is from perl-term-readkey in extra so should have been rebuilt already.  Maybe that was a symptom and not the cause...

Re: cpan gives ReadKey.so: undefined symbol: Perl_Tstack_sp_ptr

It is possible that my perl setup is using a mishmash of perl componentry from arch repos and manual CPAN downloads.

I didn't have perl-term-readkey or perl-term-readline installed.

The ReadKey.so file reports unowned by any package.

[root@gordon ~]# pacman -Qo /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current/i686-linux-thread-multi/auto/Term/ReadKey/ReadKey.so
error: No package owns /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current/i686-linux-thread-multi/auto/Term/ReadKey/ReadKey.so

Hmmm, looks like you have manually installed it from CPAN.  Rebuilding it was the right thing to do then!
