Subject: doc/Makefile.PL does not work with BSD make
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 332b
The doc/Makefile.PL uses $< which is not portable across make versions. Especially it is not working with BSD make. $< evaluates to the empty string in this situation which causes the Makefile to hang. It is more safe to use the explicite source and target filenames instead of the special variables $< and $@. Regards, Slaven
