I haven't tried perl 5.8.0 myself yet.  I presume that there will not
be any issue with my code, but obviously I haven't tested it.

My best suggestion is to install the ifeffit wrapper by itself without
athena.  (If you are using an older ifeffit distribution which has an
athena subdirectory under wrapper/perl/, delete the athena
subdirectory before building the wrapper.).  Then install athena

My next, and more annoying, suggestion, is to clean up any traces of
ifeffit's perl inteface (i.e. any instances of the files Ifeffit.pm,
Ifeffit.bs, and Ifeffit.so) then try again.

All of this points to something that I brought up on the list a while
ago and which Matt has been advocating for.  It would probably be best
to make on big package with the the Ifeffit/perl inteface and my
programs all bundled together and distributed separately from
Ifeffit.  I'll look into that next month.
