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

Reference: www.spamcannibal.org

During perl Makefile.PL I have the following errors:

WARNING: HTMLSCRIPTPODS is not a known parameter.
WARNING: INST_HTMLLIBDIR is not a known parameter.
WARNING: EXTRA_META is not a known parameter.
WARNING: INSTALLHTMLSITELIBDIR is not a known parameter.

Looks good
'EXTRA_META' is not a known MakeMaker parameter name.
'HTMLLIBPODS' is not a known MakeMaker parameter name.
'HTMLSCRIPTPODS' is not a known MakeMaker parameter name.

1) The file META.yml is there. Why does it says it isn't?

2) Any hints on the other issues also?

Thanks

    Mail::SpamCannibal's Makefile.PL attempts to extend the behaviour of ExtUtils::MakeMaker by messing with its internals, but some of those internals have changed.

    For example, the warnings are normal, but it attempts to silence them. However, the way in which it does that doesn't work since ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.44 (Feb 28, 2008).

    I don't know if the other problems are related to this hackery. Your best bet would be to install an old version of ExtUtils::MakeMaker:

    tar xvzf ExtUtils-MakeMaker-$OLDVER.tar.gz cd ExtUtils-MakeMaker-$OLDVER perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/tmp/oldMM LIB=/tmp/oldMM/lib/perl5 make test install export PERL5LIB=/tmp/oldMM/lib/perl5${PERL5LIB:+:$PERL5LIB} ...proceed to install Mail-SpamCannibal...
      Hi,

      I tried to install ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.42 but it failed:
      /ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.42# make test
      PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/local/bin/perl "-Ilib" "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e" "test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t

      t/basic.t ............... 37/83
      # Failed test in t/basic.t at line 162.

      What should I do to correct the installation?

      Thanks
        Going away for a week, sorry.
