Description Pekka Savola 2000-12-15 06:04:55 UTC
perl-5.6.0-11 will not rebuild on RHL6x due to fhs patch forcing
the man page installation to /usr/share/man but %{_mandir} macro
in the spec file trying to find them from /usr/man.

%{_mandir} should probably be changed to /usr/share/man because
it won't work with any other options anyway..

The problem is the FHS patch, which hard-codes the mandir in hints/linux.sh and lib/ExtUtils/MM_Unix.pm. I created an alternative spec file that disables 
the patch and passes the mandir macro to Configure. This handles the hints file, but not the MM_Unix.pm module. That file may need to be patched 
dynamically from some script in the spec file.

Comment 2 kenneth_porter 2000-12-21 10:25:23 UTC
I'd attach the revised spec file but I don't see that option for this bug entry in Bugzilla. Here's a context diff:

< Release: 11
> Release: 12
< %patch6 -p1 -b .fhs
> # patch to hints/linux.sh replaced with Configure option,
> # still need equivalent for lib/ExtUtils/MM_Unix.pm though...
> # %patch6 -p1 -b .fhs
> 	-Dman1dir=%{_mandir}/man1 \
> 	-Dman3dir=%{_mandir}/man3 \
