Bug 58636

Summary: Broken PERL_LEVEL check
Product: Ports & Packages Reporter: Jeremy Chadwick <freebsd>
Component: Individual Port(s)Assignee: Yen-Ming Lee <leeym>
Status: Closed FIXED    
Severity: Affects Only Me    
Priority: Normal    
Version: Latest   
Hardware: Any   
OS: Any   

Description Jeremy Chadwick 2003-10-28 15:50:19 UTC
	The PERL_LEVEL check is broken and incorrect; the value is not formatted
	in such a way (see ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk).  This causes duplicate copies
	of the same module to end up being installed on the host.  Test::Simple
	and Test::Harness (the same versions none the less!) already come with
	perl-5.8.  I'm not sure if they come with perl 5.6.

Fix: 

Change the PERL_LEVEL check from 580000 to 500800.

	Also, is there any chance we could get one of the ports maintainers to
	go through all of the ports recursively to look for broken PERL_LEVEL
	checks?  My guess is that there are more than a few ports exhibiting
	this behaviour, and we might as well squash them all in one blow.
How-To-Repeat: 	Install razor-agents on a box with perl-5.8 installed.  You will have
	two copies of Test::Simple and Test::Harness floating around.

This seems to be the only case:

# grep -r PERL_LEVEL /usr/ports | grep -v '500[68]0[01]'

You don't have to be a port maintainer, though ;-)
