To Whom It May Concern:

I just downloaded the SFIO97 package for use with Perl 5.003_99 and am
attempting to make it.  I am receiving the following error while making
the sfio package.

export CC; CC=cc; ../../../bin/iffe run features/sfio
../../../bin/iffe: 56: Sytax error: Bad substitution
*** Error code 2


I am VERY new to unix, but not to programming.  Is this not saying that
we have a syntax error on line 56 of the script iffe?  Is this a bug in
my /bin/sh??? or in the program? the way I am running FreeBSD
2.1.7.  Please help!  Thanks ahead of time...
