Subject: Issue building on OSX using carton
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
I am experiencing issues building XML::LibXML on OSX 10.11 (El Capitan). I have installed libxml2 using homebrew. Manual configuration seems to work: $ perl Makefile.PL LIBS='-L/usr/local/Cellar/libxml2/2.9.4/lib' INC='I/usr/local/Cellar/libxml2/2.9.4/include/libxml2' I have added the lib part to the environment variable: LD_LIBRARY_PATH and include path to: CFLAGS, CPATH, CPPFLAGS and CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH This does however not seem to work. [jonasbn:~/Downloads/XML-LibXML-2.0128] $ Show quoted text
> perl Makefile.PL
enable native perl UTF8 running xml2-config...ok (2.9.2) Checking for ability to link against Checking for ability to link against libxml2...libxml2, zlib, and/or the Math library (-lm) have not been found. Try setting LIBS and INC values on the command line Or get libxml2 from If you install via RPMs, make sure you also install the -devel RPMs, as this is where the headers (.h files) are. Also, you may try to run perl Makefile.PL with the DEBUG=1 parameter to see the exact reason why the detection of libxml2 installation failed or why Makefile.PL was not able to compile a test program.
