Comment 1 Denis Leroy 2007-09-05 07:53:42 EDT
Hmm, ok. So the gtkmm stack uses a Perl-based code generation system (the C++
source code is generated automatically from source templates).

It turns out that the automake setup for some reasons installs the Perl
autogeneration scripts under /usr/lib/glibmm-2.4/proc, and the perl files are
picked up automatically by RPM, and therefore pollute the RPM perl namespace.

I don't know why the perl files are installed since they're not really meant to
be used by developers. I'll check upstream.

I'll just rm -r /usr/lib/glibmm-2.4/proc after installation and push an update.
Comment 2 Denis Leroy 2007-09-06 05:49:15 EDT
"They are useful for creating other *mm projects, yes. But it's not awful
if they are not installed by the distro."

If someone requests it, I'll package them separately with an extra namespace.
Removed for now.
