Subject: Can't create Makefile.PL for XML-LibXML-Common required for XML-LibXML-1.69
Date: Fri, 16 Jan 2009 16:32:19 -0600
To: "bug-XML-LibXML [...] rt.cpan.org" <bug-XML-LibXML [...] rt.cpan.org>
From: "Thayer, Craig" <Craig.Thayer [...] pegs.com>
I have downloaded and followed the directions for building XML::LibXML-1.69 for Windows, but the first build step fails to produce the Makefile.PL for LibXML-Common-0.13 (which is a prerequisite for LibXML). The three required includes, libraries and binaries (i.e., iconv-1.9.2.win32, libxml2-2.7.2.win32, and zlib-1.2.3.win32) have been combined into the C:\Prog\LibXML directory per the README file instructions and I have downloaded XML-LibXML-Common-0.13 and XML-LibXML-1.69 as well. But when I attempt to perform the first step to build LibXML-Common, here is the error I get: C:\Archive\Perl Modules\XML-LibXML-Common-0.13>perl Makefile.PL INC=-Ic:\Prog\LibXML\include LIBS=-Lc:\Prog\LibXML\lib enable native perl UTF8 looking for -lxml2... no looking for -llibxml2... no libxml2 not found Try setting LIBS and INC values on the command line Or get libxml2 from http://www.libxml.org/ If you install via RPMs, make sure you also install the -devel RPMs, as this is where the headers (.h files) are. C:\Archive\Perl Modules\XML-LibXML-Common-0.13> I need XML::LibXML for some QA tools development I'm doing so any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

C:\Archive\Perl Modules\XML-LibXML-Common-0.13> Here are the README notes I am following for building LibXML under Windows (my OS is XP SP3): Notes for Microsoft Windows =========================== Thanks to Randy Kobes there is a pre-compiled PPM package available on http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppmpackages/ Usually it takes a little time to build the package for the latest release. If you want to build XML::LibXML on Windows from source, you can use the following instructions contributed by Christopher J. Madsen: These instructions assume that you already have your system set up to compile modules that use C components. You need: Show quoted text
> iconv-VERSION.win32.zip > libxml2-VERSION.win32.zip > zlib-VERSION.win32.zip
Download the latest version of each. (Each package will probably have a different version.) When you extract them, you'll get directories named iconv-VERSION.win32, libxml2-VERSION.win32, and zlib-VERSION.win32, each containing bin, lib, and include directories. Combine all the bin, include, and lib directories under c:\Prog\LibXML. (You can use any directory you prefer; just adjust the instructions accordingly.) Get the latest version of XML-LibXML-Common and XML-LibXML from CPAN. Extract them. Issue these commands in the XML-LibXML-Common-VERSION directory: Show quoted text
> perl Makefile.PL INC=-Ic:\Prog\LibXML\include LIBS=-Lc:\Prog\LibXML\lib > nmake > copy c:\Prog\LibXML\bin\*.dll blib\arch\auto\XML\LibXML\Common > nmake test > nmake install
(Note: Some systems use dmake instead of nmake.) By copying the libxml2 DLLs to the arch directory, you help avoid conflicts with other programs you may have installed that use other (possibly incompatible) versions of those DLLs. Issue these commands in the XML-LibXML-VERSION directory: Show quoted text
> perl Makefile.PL INC=-Ic:\Prog\LibXML\include LIBS=-Lc:\Prog\LibXML\lib > nmake > nmake test > nmake install
