It looks like there is something missing in the Gentoo distrubution or 
something because there aren't any errors on LFS or Slackware....

Weird problem...

Tod: could you tackle this perl bug for me?
Comment 2 Tod M. Neidt (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-06 08:33:42 UTC
No problem. I'll try and take a look at it today sometime.
Comment 3 Tod M. Neidt (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-06 08:44:21 UTC

I don't see this problem. It merged fine for me.  Are you loading this directly
from cpan?  If so, you need to merge the dependency dev-perl/libnet first. 
Additionla information on exactly what you were doing would be appreciated.


Note to self: update the syntax of these ebuilds regardless.
Comment 4 Tod M. Neidt (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-06 09:07:48 UTC
I wonder if we can hack the perl module to play nice with portage?? The
CPAN module is provided with perl-5.6.1.
