Description Gabe 2005-08-29 14:57:51 UTC
in the pkg_postinst() method of the dev-lang/perl-5.8.7.ebuild, it skips the
"Converting C headers to Perl" step if the ROOT var is != /.  As a result, if I
try to run:

ROOT="/image" emerge dev-lang/perl

The following path is empty instead of containing .ph files:


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.ROOT="/image" emerge dev-lang/perl

Actual Results:  
The following path in not populated:


Expected Results:  
The following path should be filled with the perl version of he /usr/src/linux
header files

Marking this wontfix - if ROOT != /, then its difficult to run this part since this takes place in POSTINST, ie after perl has been merged onto your shiny system.
