lang/perl5: use.perl port does not handle progs like pod2man
Last modified: 2005-02-02 09:53:38 UTC
When running use.perl port, I expected all the system perl programs to
be exchanged for their port equivalences. But, for the below listed
files, they are installed by the port but never used unless one sets
/usr/local/bin before /usr/bin, which is hardly common? Shouldn't they
be handled by the use.port script as well?
How-To-Repeat: Check it out:
for i in `ls /usr/bin`; do
if [ -x /usr/local/*bin/$i ]
then echo $i
Over to maintainer of lang/perl5.
After the recent update of lang/perl5 and lang/perl5.8, if perldoc, a2p,
and other perl-related binaries are detected in /usr/bin, they are
replaced with symlinks to the versions installed by perl port, provided
use.perl port was run.
