Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) (RETIRED) 2020-05-15 13:59:01 UTC
This is a tracker for perl packages which have issues with miss-handling calling "cc" and "ar" and friends correctly. Its worth mentioning a lot of these may stem from problems in the underlying build chains, such as ExtUtils::MakeMaker, ExtUtils::CBuilder, etc, which may depend on the toolchain choices that Perl itself was built with. For bugs to be deemed "valid" and "fixable by us" for this tracker, there must be something directly in the ebuild that is awry, and it must be demonstrable *after* having built perl itself in an identical configuration, ( as these choices are made /in perl itself/ and hardcoded in Config.pm or one of its components, and then all perl modules simply re-use this configuration ). Its expected that the *majority* of things that fail for misusing host tools, will be explained by being defects in Perl's own tooling (which we can't reasonably fix), and consequently, not fixed in the ebuild.
