Subject: M::B's API is unable to build PathTools, but the command line version can

Hi, I really thought i had reported this before, but i can't find any of it in my mailbox or on RT, so forgive me is this is a duplicate. Module::Build's API seems to not do quite the same thing as it's commandline equivalent. Due to this, the PathTools distribution is uninstallable using M::B's API (using the makefile.PL shipped with it, it works again... odd!) Consider this code: [kane@coke ~...build/PathTools-3.06]$ cat x.pl use Module::Build; warn "Using version: $Module::Build::VERSION\n"; my $mb = eval { Module::Build->new_from_context( %buildflags ) }; $mb->dispatch('build'); Running this makes Cwd not find ppport.h: [kane@coke ~...build/PathTools-3.06]$ perlc x.pl Using version: 0.261 /opt/bin/perl Build.PL Deleting _build Creating custom builder _build/lib/MyModuleBuilder.pm in _build/lib Checking whether your kit is complete...

Seems it was already in this bug report for CPANPLUS: https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=11560 And at that time cc'd to the m-b mailing list, but never got sorted...

I believe this is fixed in 0.27_01, right? The next part would be to backport the fix to the 0.26xx series, which would be harder but I think certainly doable. -Ken

Here are my results with module::build 0.26 (debian default), 0.2610 (latest cpan) and 0.27_01 (latest dev), and the following script: use Module::Build; print "Using: " . $Module::Build::VERSION . $/; my $mb = Module::Build->new_from_context; $mb->dispatch('build'); In short, 0.27_01 failed, but that was due to the new way of handing things with 'eu:: cbuilder' -- after installing that and configuring & building 0.27_01, it compiled correctly. Below is the output from all 4 sessions -- please backport this ASAP or release 0.27. The amounts of failures it's causing and bug reports we're receiving about 'Cwd' and/or 'File:: Spec' not building are extraordinarily large.

Version 0.2611 has now been released, backporting this fix from the 0.27_xx codeline. Should be fixed there now. -Ken
