Subject: DBD-Oracle incompatibility with MM_Unix v1.5
Date: Fri, 6 Oct 2006 16:27:00 -0400
To: <bug-DBD-Oracle@rt.cpan.org>
From: "Dennis McRitchie" <dmcr@Princeton.EDU>
Hi, v1.18 has an incompatibility with ExtUtils::MM_Unix v1.50 (invoked by ExtUtils::MakeMaker). ExtUtils::MM_Unix v1.50 now requires that $self->{LD_RUN_PATH} be defined and not be an empty string so that the Makefile created will specify its use during the build. This is required by both SUPER::const_loadlibs and SUPER::dynamic_lib. Hence I thought it simplest to define/modify $self->{LD_RUN_PATH} before calling SUPER::const_loadlibs. This fix should be compatible with the old MM_Unix code as well. So the new code, after applying the attached patch, looks like this: sub const_loadlibs { my $self = shift; # ExtUtils::MM_Unix v1.50 (invoked by ExtUtils::MakeMaker) # requires that $self->{LD_RUN_PATH} be defined and not be # an empty string for Makefile to specify its use during the # build. This is required by both SUPER::const_loadlibs # and SUPER::dynamic_lib. hence it is best if we define # or modify $self->{LD_RUN_PATH} here *before* calling # SUPER::const_loadlibs. # edit LD_RUN_PATH ... my ($ldrp) = $self->{LD_RUN_PATH}; # remove redundant /lib or /usr/lib as it can cause problems $ldrp =~ s!:(/usr)?/lib$!! if $ldrp; # if it's empty then set it manually #Lincoln: if pick the right library path my $libdir = main::ora_libdir(); $ldrp ||= "$OH/$libdir:$OH/rdbms/$libdir"; $self->{LD_RUN_PATH} = $ldrp; local($_) = $self->SUPER::const_loadlibs(@_); print "Ignoring LD_RUN_PATH='$ENV{LD_RUN_PATH}' in environment\n" if $ENV{LD_RUN_PATH}; print "LD_RUN_PATH=$ldrp\n"; return $_; } Hope this helps.
