<waltman> Andy: i'm trying to update Test::Harness, and when i run the tests I get got: 'Constant subroutine __need_size_t redefined at /usr/lib/perl/5.8.0/stddef.ph line 146.' in t/test-harness.t <Schwern> waltman: Seen it all the time. Your .ph files are screwy. <Schwern> waltman: Test::Harness tries to supress the warning (it comes from loading wait.ph) but that doesn't seem to work. <waltman> Schwern: any advice on unscrewying them? <Schwern> waltman: Umm, try a later version of h2ph?

Is this the final fix? Any suggestions on how I submit this to the Debian Perl maintainer so as to get the perl package's .ph's unscrewyed? Thanks

Its *a* fix. I've tried everything to get Test::Harness to supress that warning but for some reason can't. Show quoted text

http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting Just show that perl -wle 'require wait.ph' throws warnings. I'd check to see if their version in testing and/or unstable continues to do it. I'd also check so see if bleadperl's h2ph fixes the problem. If it doesn't, then its not Debian's fault but Perl's. -- Don't step on my funk

Well, I've verified that both testing and unstable have this problem, but am unsure on how to get ahold of and test bleadperl. Documentation seems to be sparse, or I'm looking in the wrong places (which is the more likely of the two). Thanks for your previous answers, hopefully this final pointer in the right direction will set me on my way...

Look at the perlhack man page. rsync -avuz rsync://ftp.linux.activestate.com/perl-current -- Michael G Schwern schwern@pobox.com http://www.pobox.com/~schwern/ "The method employed I would gladly explain, While I have it so clear in my head, If I had but the time and you had but the brain-- But much yet remains to be said." -- "Hunting of the Snark", Lewis Carroll

This is fixed in Test::Harness 2.45_01, which will eventually become 2.46. We've removed the code that uses wait.ph, so there's no external dependency.
