Subject: "Build fakeinstall --uninst 1" actually does the uninstalls
Download (untitled) / with headers

When using the "fakeinstall" the user doesn't want their system touched, but if they also use the --uninst flag, the uninstallation will actually happen. This may be an ExtUtils::Install bug, not sure yet. Here's a transcript, note that the second time through there was no file to uninstall: # ./Build fakeinstall --uninst 1 Skipping /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread- multi/auto/Algorithm/SVMLight/SVMLight.bs (unchanged) Skipping /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread- multi/auto/Algorithm/SVMLight/SVMLight.so (unchanged) Unlinking /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread- multi/auto/Algorithm/SVMLight/SVMLight.so (shadowing?)

This is indeed an ExtUtils::Install bug. I've filed it in ExtUtils::MakeMaker's queue. We'll have to wait for them to fix it over there - I think it can be just a one-line patch, but their code in SVN seems not to build/test properly right now so I'm not sure. -Ken
