( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If it was just about not removing the files, that'd be easy, I solved that part in 15 minutes on Gentoo. Alas, the files are not even installed by a standard Makefile as produced by ExtUtils:MM when using the vendor_install target, so it doesn't seem only Debian's problem but intended behavior---with ExtUtils::MM being a core module I presume even some sort of official Perl policy. I'd be interested in why this is so and if I can/should circumvent it.

That is really hard to read/disgest.

I think you're wrong, I used make install_vendor and I got ../lib/perl5/MSWin32-x86-multi-thread/auto/Foo/.packlist

Sure, I used install_base , and my config is

$ perl -V:installvendor.* installvendorarch=''; installvendorbin=''; installvendorhtml1dir=''; installvendorhtml3dir=''; installvendorlib=''; installvendorman1dir=''; installvendorman3dir=''; installvendorscript='';

But that makes no difference

$ md tempjunk $ cd tempjunk $ h2xs -AX Foo Defaulting to backwards compatibility with perl 5.14.1 If you intend this module to be compatible with earlier perl versions, + please specify a minimum perl version with the -b option.

    [perldigious]: So I don't envy you mountain guys if you have to drive in the winter, even with tire chains.
    MidLifeXis waves.
    [stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
    [stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
    Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
    [thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
    [perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
    [thezip]: Me, not as much.
    [perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
    [stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
