Description Kenneth Porter 2008-07-30 19:50:44 EDT
CentOS 5.2, based on RHEL, doesn't split out a separate perl-devel package, and
the current spec for subversion has a BuildRequires for perl-devel. The
following change to the spec file is suggested (based on a suggestion on

%if 0%{?fedora} > 6
BuildRequires: perl-devel >= 2:5.8.0
BuildRequires: perl >= 2:5.8.0
BuildRequires: perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)
Comment 1 Joe Orton 2008-08-04 16:05:31 EDT
Raw Hide spec files are not designed to be built on any distro other than Raw Hide; you need to fork the spec and keep distro-specific hacks in the fork.
Comment 2 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2008-08-04 17:44:36 EDT
Joe, if you're not supporting this little tiny spec file change to be applied to rawhide, can I?
Comment 3 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2008-08-04 17:52:02 EDT
pkgdb acl requests added for F-8, F-9 and DEVEL branches
Comment 4 Joe Orton 2008-08-05 03:37:44 EDT
No, what about when the next guy comes along and says he wants the Raw Hide spec file to be portable to RHL8?  RHEL 2.1?  SuSE?  Mandrake?  Where would it stop?
