Description Juergen Rose 2016-07-30 16:35:34 UTC
Created attachment 442004 [details]
logfile for 'g-cpan -iv Math-GSL' until ^C

'g-cpan -iv Math-GSL' fails. It generates an endless loop creating a new 'Build' script for 'Module-Build' version '0.4218', see the attachment.

BTW., dev-perl/Module-Build-0.421.600 is already installed. Why 'g-cpan -iv Math-GSL' wants to install perl-gcpan/Module-Build?

Could you please specify version?
Is it still reproducible on last version (0.16.9)?
Comment 2 S. Gilles 2017-12-25 06:24:23 UTC
I'm hitting the same problem (except that Module-Build is now version 0.4224).

This is version 0.16.9.
Comment 3 Sergiy Borodych 2020-04-03 15:14:23 UTC
Checked with g-cpan-0.17.0 (will be in portage shortly).
Math-GSL-0.40.ebuild was created without any issue.
Please check it on your side.
Comment 4 Sergiy Borodych 2020-04-11 05:23:39 UTC
Please check with v0.17.0
