Description Jerry James 2013-03-23 01:15:08 UTC
Description of problem:
I just had a build of gcl fail like this:

make[1]: Entering directory `/builddir/build/BUILD/gcl-2.6.8/info'
makeinfo gcl-tk.texi
Can't locate Carp.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/share/texinfo/lib/Unicode-EastAsianWidth/lib /usr/share/texinfo /usr/local/lib/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at /usr/share/texinfo/Texinfo/Common.pm line 35.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/share/texinfo/Texinfo/Common.pm line 35.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/share/texinfo/Texinfo/Convert/Texinfo.pm line 27.

Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/makeinfo line 100.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/makeinfo line 100.

Apparently makeinfo needs perl(Carp), but the texinfo package does not require it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to build the gcl info documention
Actual results:
The build fails

Expected results:
The build succeeds
