Description oklaspec 2015-09-24 18:53:59 UTC
Hi! Building the package of port is failed,
and therefore dependent packages ant repo tree
is imposible to build. Here output:

root@ns2:/usr/ports/devel/p5-App-cpanminus # make package
===>  Building package for p5-App-cpanminus-1.7039
pkg-static: Unable to access file /usr/ports/devel/p5-App-cpanminus/work/stage/usr/local/share/man/man1/cpanm.1.gz: No such file or directory
*** [do-package] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/p5-App-cpanminus.

The file is actually have path ('/share/' - component is difference):

I'm also affected with this bug for devel/p5-App-cpanminus.

The bug was introduced in this commit: https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-ports/commit/0a3881946e73bed6ebd8016e2b2ecd90da2b69f1

Specifically here in the pkg-plist file:


Not sure which is the best way to fix it since this change affect all Perl ports.

Hope it gets fixed fast because we use tons of Perl modules.

Comment 4 Tod McQuillin 2015-12-11 03:47:53 UTC
I found this happens when the obsolete variable PERL_VERSION is defined in make.conf (or elsewhere).

In /usr/ports/Mk/Uses/perl5.mk we have:

.if defined(PERL_VERSION)

and later:

.if defined(THIS_IS_OLD_PERL)
SITE_MAN1_REL?=	share/man/man1

This is used to populate PERL5_MAN1 which ends up putting the wrong paths in pkg_plist when %%PERL5_MAN1%% is used.

I fixed this by removing PERL_VERSION from /etc/make.conf.  The replacement for this is now DEFAULT_VERSIONS.

The problem originally was on 9.3-RELEASE r279048 immediately after system install from sources with empty /etc/make.conf
