Description of problem:
I cannot build Module::Build on Red Hat 9.
I've tried both installing from source, and with the CPAN shell.
I reported this to the maintainer of the module and he suggested that it is a
locale problem, since I'm getting quoting errors, e.g.
"/xs............ok 6/11Can't exec "gcc'": No such file or directory at"
If I set the environment variable
the module builds fine.
Bug reported to maintainer of Module::Build:
Building modules using the CPAN shell with Perl is a BIG pain.
Will this be fixed in the future?
I can't rely on RPMs being made available. I'd like to use CPAN.
Is there any progress on this? I've reported this with no feedback at all.
If the CPAN shell doesn't work on Red Hat for some modules, there
needs to be a way to integrate the CPAN shell with up2date to fetch
the non-working modules.
I'm going to put this down to the build of Perl in Red Hat 9 being broken.
i.e. Perl will not work for a locale for which utf8 is allowed.
Closing as a bug.
