This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.26.0.

[Please describe your issue here]

We have a Perl 5.26.0 Solaris 11 SPARC build with -Dusedtrace. When
installing the autobox 2.85 version from CPAN, it compiled but failed at
testing and complained symbol __dtraceenabled_perl___sub__entry undefined.
I had to override config.h to comment out the USE_DTRACE macro to get autobox installed.

I guess it's similar to this issue

We also have Solaris 11 x86_64 and that is good.

ps: I can't have the complete perl -V data as I can't send email from my workplace.
