Subject: Alien-Gnuplot fails to configure on FreeBSD-11.0
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 762b
In preparation for the release of perl-5.28.0 in May 2018, I have been testing a selected subset of CPAN distributions against monthly development releases in the perl-5.27.* series. Today I attempted to install Alien-Gnuplot against perl-5.27.10 on FreeBSD-11.0 using 'cpanm' as my installer. After an initial failure which pointed toward the absence of the 'gnuplot' library on my system, I invoked: ##### sudo pkg install gnuplot ##### ... and the library was installed in /usr/local/bin/gnuplot. However, even that was not sufficient go enable Makefile.PL to complete successfully. Please find attached (i) a summary of the 'cpanm' log output for this attempt; and (ii) the relevant output of 'perl -V'. Please advise. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
