Description andrewem 2000-01-05 17:34:52 EST
The spec file creates a configuration override file "config.over" that has
a few bugs in it:

1) The following will always fail as installprefix is the buildroot

     test -d \$installprefix || mkdir \$installprefix
     test -d \$installprefix/bin || mkdir \$installprefix/bin

   To fix, use "mkdir -p" or "makedirhier" instead of "mkdir".

2) By default, Perl builds with "-O2" as the ccflags.
   Add this line:

1) Better explanation:
   since /var/tmp/perl-root does not exist yet
     mkdir $installprefix/usr
   will of course fail.

2) Oops...I forgot the quotes :(

Fixed in perl-5.00503-8 in Raw Hide.
