Hi all,

Sorry for the off-topic post, but I love Perl and use it everyday, and will probably do so in the matter described below too! :-)

I run a large composite build on a Sun machine using gmake 3.79.1 on SunOS 5.8.
I wish to migrate certain make files to another Sun machine, with virtually the same versions of third-party libraries etc.
What kind of basic sanity check can I perform to see if the products linked as a result of the make file migration are "ok". 
Of course, all products will need to be tested as per the usual development life cycle (sub-system/system/volume etc.). However, before this effort is made, I wonder what rule-of-thumb can I apply before passing the products on/rolling back the make files migration.

At a first glance, I see that there is a considerable increase in file size of products.

Have posted to the gnu-utils forum too, but it is an awfully low traffic list.
