Subject: Crypt-SSLeay-0.55: interactivity bad for packaging

Hi! I just updated the Crypt-SSLeay package in pkgsrc to 0.55. It worked fine, except that I had to patch out the question for live tests from Makefile.PL. In pkgsrc, it should be possible to build packages unattendedly, and the interactive prompt makes this impossible. Is there a way to skip it by giving a flag? If not, could you please add one? Thank you, Thomas

From the documentation (README, Crypt::SSLeay.pm): For unattended (batch) installations, to be absolutely certain that Makefile.PL does not prompt for questions on STDIN, set the following environment variable beforehand: PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 (This is true for any CPAN module that uses ExtUtils::MakeMaker). The problem is that prompt() in ExtUtils::MakeMaker thinks it's talking to a tty. Regards, David
