remiah has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

ExtUtils::MakeMaker module stops while "make test" on my machine. (FreeBSD 8.2, Perl 5.12.2)

update:Solved with ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.63_02.tar.gz

it always stops at t/INSTALL_BASE.t 3/20. Theses are messages printed at console.
PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/local/bin/perl "-Iblib/arch" "-Iblib/lib" "-MEx +tUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" +t/*.t t/00compile.t ............. ok t/arch_check.t ............ ok t/backwards.t ............. ok t/basic.t ................. ok t/build_man.t ............. ok t/cd.t .................... ok t/config.t ................ ok t/dir_target.t ............ ok t/FIRST_MAKEFILE.t ........ ok t/fix_libs.t .............. ok t/fixin.t ................. ok t/hints.t ................. ok t/INST.t .................. ok t/INST_PREFIX.t ........... ok t/INSTALL_BASE.t .......... 3/20
What I have done so far with Q and A. I am stucked.

Q.Can I execute INSTALL_BASE.t alone?
A.it uses modules under lib directory, "perl -Ilib INSTALL_BASE.t" will execute test script alone.

Q. Where it stops?
A. my $install_out = run("$make install");

Q. What it says when you kick it with system("$make install"); ?
A. it says
FreeBSD: Registering installation in the package database FreeBSD: Cannot determine module description
and stops.

Q. Try to run it with root. then How?
A. it shows the same message above.

This may be a problem of FreeBSD and may not be a problem of perl. I wonder if someone meets same situation.Any hints and suggestions, welcome.

    ExtUtils::MakeMaker module stops while "make test"

    What distribution?

      Any hints and suggestions, welcome.

      Try MSCHWERN/ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.63_02.tar.gz

      If the problem persists, report upstream :/

      make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 TEST_FILES=t/INSTALL_BASE.t prove -vb t/INSTALL_BASE.t perl -Mblib t/INSTALL_BASE.t
        Thanks for replies.

        I installed it from cpan and its version was ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.62. I couln't think of newer version of the module... I'll search for 6.63 and try again!
