Subject: Don't call link_executable() on Windows
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 607b
ExtUtils::CBuilder is still skipping all tests for link_executable() on Windows because it doesn't have a platformer/compiler specific implementation for it yet. The naive implementation in ExtUtils::CBuilder::Base is good enough most of the time for the Module::Build test, but does fail for the 64-bit Windows 2003 Platform SDK compiler. Module::Build doesn't even use link_executable; it only calls it to determine if the tmp directory is executable, if I understand this correctly. This isn't applicable to Windows, so I suggest that the call to link_executable() should simply be skipped on Windows.

Thanks. Applied to repo.

Now that there has been a stable Module::Build release, I'm marking this "patched" issue as "resolved".
