Description Nicolas Mailhot 2008-02-09 07:08:21 EST
Description of problem:

Somehow perl-Glib sets a dependency on perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)

That means any perl-Glib using app will pull the full perl devel stack
Please cut the dependency bloat

# rpm -e perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker
	perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker) is needed by (installed) perl-Glib-1.162-1.fc9.x86_64
Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2008-03-11 11:23:22 EDT
Like with perl-Gtk2, this is a real dependency:

Glib/MakeHelper.pm uses ExtUtils-MakeMaker.
