Subject: M::B masquerades as a Makefile.PL, but dies on unsupported options
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 536b
Take M::B's own makefile.pl (which secretly under the hood calls M::B instead of EU::MM): hash:/home/ebroes/.cpanplus/5.8.4/build/Module-Build-0.27_01# perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/tmp/foo Sorry, PREFIX is not supported. See the Module::Build documentation for 'destdir' or 'install_base' instead. I didn't ask to use M::B, i asked for EU::MM. What's worse, a lot of conventional installers (including CPANPLUS) will now break because they expect a Makefile.PL to actually be able to accept commands that Makefile.PLs accept.

More breakage occurs: hash:/home/ebroes/.cpanplus/5.8.4/build/Module-Build-0.27_01# perl Makefile.PL destdir=/tmp # running Build.PL --destdir /tmp /usr/bin/perl Build.PL --destdir /tmp Checking whether your kit is complete... Looks good Feature 'manpage_support' enabled. Feature 'YAML_support' enabled. Feature 'C_support' enabled. Feature 'HTML_support' enabled. Deleting Build Removed previous script 'Build' Creating new 'Build' script for 'Module-Build' version '0.27_01' hash:/home/ebroes/.cpanplus/5.8.4/build/Module-Build-0.27_01# make pure_install make: *** No rule to make target `pure_install'. Stop. which means start packaging tools which dont want a perllocal.pod updated/installed (like dpkg) now also break. Either dont masquerade yourself as a Makefile.PL (since you can not actually 100% emulate it), or make sure the emulation works, or just actually use EU::MM, as it *is* a core module.

Both PREFIX and the pure_install target are now supported as of 0.27_02, both under the Makefile.PL emulation and natively under M::B. As for whether we emulate the Makefile.PL or not, that ship sailed a long long time ago. -Ken
