Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) gentoo-dev 2020-02-04 03:51:29 UTC
In EAPI7, its preferable to put dev-perl/Module-Build in BDEPEND.

However, the check presently only checks DEPEND, so the eclass fails
unless you hack it into DEPEND too.

 * Using Module::Build
 * QA Notice: The ebuild uses Module::Build but doesn't depend on it.
 * ERROR: dev-perl/MaxMind-DB-Reader-XS-1.0.8::local-portage failed (configure phase):
 *    Add dev-perl/Module-Build to DEPEND!
 * 

Current logic is:

> einfo "Using Module::Build"
> if [[ ${DEPEND} != *virtual/perl-Module-Build* && ${DEPEND} != *dev-perl/Module-Build* && ${PN} != Module-Build ]] ; then
>     eerror "QA Notice: The ebuild uses Module::Build but doesn't depend on it."
>     die    " Add dev-perl/Module-Build to DEPEND!"
> fi

Don't forget that per PMS those vars can have totally random values.

Do you need us to patch Portage to make you realize that?
