Description John (EBo) David 2010-08-27 20:06:08 UTC
gtkspell requires the XML::Parser perl module to configure, but it is not included in the ebuilds dependencies. Here are a few lines of the build log for confirmation:

checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking for perl >= 5.8.1... 5.12.1
checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool

After installing XML-Parser, gtkspell builds as expected.

You may need to run perl-cleaner first.

Comment 4 John (EBo) David 2010-08-27 21:08:46 UTC
Why not add "perl-cleaner --reallyall" or similar to perl's ebuild pkg_postins and make this automatic every time perl is updated or downgraded?  I have not programmed in perl in a decade, and have no idea of the nuances of maintaining a working perl installation on my cluster nor home machines.  

Also, the last time I updated perl the cleaner_msg was buried in the middle of output from 265 packages that were updated in the middle of the night, and I never saw the message.
