lang/perl5.8 assumes too many paths
Last modified: 2005-02-02 09:58:14 UTC
use.perl has paths to many things hardcoded into it. a few things being the location of make.conf,
manpath.config, and the installed perl binary. It should at least respect __MAKE_CONF, and a fix should
possible be written to not assume ANY paths. I have no patch for this at this time, I will however consider
writing one if the maintainer likes. He has been CC'd on this PR.
How-To-Repeat: Set __MAKE_CONF to something other than /etc/make.conf and build lang/perl5.8, changes are not written to the
Both lang/perl5 and lang/perl5.8 now respect __MAKE_CONF.
