    Inablity to emerge help2man prevents world update


    I saw a similar problem to mine, but I could not follow it. When I try an emerge --update --deep --with-deps=y --newuse world I get the following message when I

    cat /var/tmp/portage/sys-apps/help2man-1.40.5/work/help2man-1.40.5/config.log

    Code:
    This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
    running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.
    
    It was created by configure, which was
    generated by GNU Autoconf 2.68.  Invocation command line was

    I copied this from the above which makes me think I have the wrong perl version.

    Code:
    configure:1771: checking for perl
    configure:1776: ...version 5.008 required
    configure:1785: trying perl
    found version 5.012
    configure:1794: result: perl
    configure:1804: checking for module Locale::gettext
    Am I on the right track?

    Solved. This link helped me solved the problem, though the different comments had me confused or reluctant to try any of the suggestions. Here is the link

    Code:

    I first reemergd gettext and than followed up with emerging help2man. Update is presently updating.
