Affects: samba 3 upgrading
Installing a perl module, such as perl-ldap, fails under perl 5.8.0
Sandbox access violations are caused, because MakeMaker in perl 5.8.0 does not support DESTDIR.
Quick Solution: Upgrade to perl 5.8.2
Recent(?) changes to perl-modules.eclass enforce that the ExtUtils::MakeMaker individual package needs to be uninstalled(via a block), as MakeMaker is now built into perl.
Problem is, the MakeMaker built into perl 5.8.0 does not support the DESTDIR directive, required for proper portage installation ( due to its temp installation directory nature).
The individual ExtUtils::MakeMaker package should not block perl modules unless the system has perl 5.8.2 installed.
Unfortunately, you've misunderstood the problem. ExtUtils-MakeMaker is and has always been a core package of perl. The ebuild for makemaker exists to help older systems, such as yours. However, perl 5.8.2 has been marked stable for archs for over 6 months now, and our ability to continue backwards support is phased out. Can you upgrade your perl version or is there a reason to stay at a lower version?
