in thread MakeMaker and Library filename extensions

Well, over the last decade i've seen hundreds try to improve their Makefile.PL, all they do is break INC=/LIBS=/postamble, and require my manual intervention beyond specifying INC/LIBS

Sounds like a personal problem ...

there are way too many platform/compiler combinations, bugs are easy to make

Agreed, And that is exactly why a Dumb MakeMaker is a Smart MakeMaker!

Take a look inside Alien::, inside Alien::SDL, Alien::wxWidgets, XML::LibXML, and check the bug cue -- reinventing sh configure is hard work

Sorry, But I could really care less about others workload, I have my own to worry about.

there is a lot to be said for KISS

Love their music ... However, Keeping It Stupid Simple is my point, it's not, it's trying to be smart and failing!

Nope, read Re^5: h2xs on Windows, it has always accepted them, before :nosearch liblist would leave them alone, but since :nosearch it doesn't leave them alone unless you use :nosearch

The code in Kid.pm::_unix_os2_ext says you are wrong ...
I'm not on Windows so I could care less how it functions on Windows.

-Enjoy
