Hi Monks, App::cpanminus installs ExtUtils::MakeMaker again and again on FreeBSD:
$ uname -a FreeBSD (host) 9.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE #0: Tue Jan 3 07:15 UT +C 2012 +i386 $ perl -v This is perl 5, version 12, subversion 4 (v5.12.4) built for i386-free +bsd-64int $ su # cpan App::cpanminus # cpanm Moose ... ==> Found dependencies: ExtUtils::MakeMaker ... Building and testing ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.62 ... OK .. # cpanm Moo ... ==> Found dependencies: ExtUtils::MakeMaker ... Building and testing ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.62 ... OK ...
I reported what happened to the CPAN author and the ports maintainer of devel/p5-App-cpanminus months ago. I wonder cpanm doesn't know which module is installed. And so I think the above problem depends on the platform, not cpanm itself. On the other hand, the cpan command works well. Why does cpanm install ExtUtils::MakeMaker again and again? Should I use 'cpan' instead of 'cpanm' on FreeBSD?

Update: added version of cpanm (Thanks to Anonymous Monk)

# cpanm -v cpanm (App::cpanminus) 1.5007 on perl 5.012004 built for i386-freebsd- +64int Work directory is /root/.cpanm/work/1329665008.1924 ( <- Should I hide + this number here? ) You have make /usr/bin/make You have LWP 6.03 You have /usr/bin/tar: bsdtar 2.8.4 - libarchive 2.8.4 You have /usr/bin/unzip

Update: The following works well: (Thanks to one of my followings on Twitter)

# cpanm --uninst-shadows ExtUtils::MakeMaker # cpanm Mojolicious

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
