Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 823b
Modules that rely on makemakers name guessing fail with cpan versions using "interesting" unpack directoriy names (they seem to be rare, I don't care, I just wanted to point it out since it doesn't seem to be reported). cerebro ~/.cpan/build/Mmap-_eUmar# perl Makefile.PL Warning: Guessing NAME [Mmap-_eUmar] from current directory name. Writing Makefile for Mmap-_eUmar cerebro ~/.cpan/build/Mmap-_eUmar# make Running Mkbootstrap for Mmap-_eUmar () chmod 644 rm -f blib/arch/auto/Mmap-_eUmar/ gcc -shared -O6 -msse2 -funroll-loops -fno-strict-aliasing -L/opt/perl/lib -L/opt/lib -L/usr/local/lib _eUmar.o -o blib/arch/auto/Mmap-_eUmar/ \ \ gcc: _eUmar.o: No such file or directory gcc: no input files make: *** [blib/arch/auto/Mmap-_eUmar/] Error 1
