Subject: Missing make dist dependencies
There seems to be no simple way to pass depends attributes to MakeMaker, so make dist should depend on predist and distcheck to produce a default Makefile that acts more simply/requires less prior knowledge and action on the the user's part.
Hi. You can pass depends attributes with 1) "WriteMakefile" interface (of MI) for easy conversion from EUMM, 2) or (previously undocumented) "makemaker_args" command. API doc is on the way. Thanks. On 2009-8-05 Wed 17:21:13, JPIERCE wrote:
