Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 2002-08-08 22:57:19 EDT
Dammit, galeon sucks.

Generating a Makefile from with MakeMaker produces the following list of actions
while handling the perlocal.pod files:

/usr/bin/perl -e '$\="\n\n";' -e 'print "=head2 ", scalar(localtime), ": C<",
shift, ">", " L<", $arg=shift, "|", $arg, ">";' -e 'print "=over 4";' -e 'while
(defined($key = shift) and defined($val = shift)){print "=item *";print "C<$key:
$val>";}' -e 'print "=back";' \
"Module" "Swab" \
	"installed into" "/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1" \
	LINKTYPE "dynamic" \
	VERSION "1.9.5" \
	>> /perllocal.pod

this is from the doc_site_install target
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-05-28 02:58:31 EDT
MakeMaker in newer perl behaves a lot better.   There isn't much we can do
safely with ancient perl in RHEL2.1 where this is still broken along with
several other MakeMaker problems.
