AxKit does not depend on Digest::MD5, which is not a standard Perl module before
a certain Perl version.
I know this bug report is lacking. It's my first. Please tell me what I could
have done to have made it better.
You're fine. I actually have another ticket for a new version of axkit, so I may
wait to correct this to see if the new version is "good".
AxKit *does* depend on Digest::MD5. From the configure script for Axkit as it
checking for module Digest::MD5 >= version 2.09... yes
AxKit's configure script checks for Digest::MD5, but AxKit's ebuild does not
specify Digest::MD5 as a depend.
If the user has never installed Digest::MD5, the build will fail, quite incorrectly.
I think I worded my report ambiguously. I appologise.
=:) really sorry about that then - I read that the first way (it doesn't depend
on it, so why require it?). The new ebuild for axkit 1.6 does depend on it
(DEPEND=), and is only masked because I am waiting back on testers for it.
Does it actually fail for you? The reason I ask is that Digest::MD5, I thought,
was part of the core perl install. Granted, not the more recent version, but I
thought that it was one of the core modules (could be mistaken though).
At any rate, there is an ebuild, should be in your portage tree, masked, for 1.6
of AxKit that does depend on D:m5.
This is corrected. Please close this bug when you have a chance.
