Description David Michael 2020-02-04 18:55:30 UTC
The hyphen ebuild has EAPI=7, but it is not using BDEPEND.  It currently tries to pull in Perl when building in a sysroot because of this.  I ran "emerge --nodeps hyphen" with a sysroot profile to test using the host Perl, which seems to work correctly.  Can the dev-lang/perl DEPEND be changed to BDEPEND to fix this?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "emerge hyphen" with a sysroot profile

Actual Results:  
It tries to install a bunch of Perl packages (which will fail when cross-compiling to certain architectures).

Expected Results:  
It should just use the root Perl install and save a lot of build time.
