Subject: Module::Build::Tiny ignores destdir for manpages
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 857b
Module::Build::Tiny appears to ignore the destdir parameter for manpages. When building a custom perl RPM (i.e. not the system perl but one that lives in /opt/customperl/perl), when I get to the %install step to install into the buildroot (not the system), I get this instead: [cadams@build-c5-x64 /sandbox/cadams/customperl/modules/build/BUILD/Module-Build-Tiny-0.019]$ ./Build install destdir=/var/tmp/customperl-build-cadams/BUILDROOT create_packlist=0 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ERROR: Can't create '/opt/customperl/perl/local/man/man3' Do not have write permissions on '/opt/custom/perl/local/man/man3' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at lib/Module/Build/Tiny.pm line 82. error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/customperl-build-cadams/tmp/rpm-tmp.35942 (%install)

I'll assume this email-like "reply" attaches a note to the bug (RT behaves like no bug tracker I've ever used, and not in a good way). It appears that the bare keyword=val syntax is some ancient compatibility syntax in Module::Build that I just need to avoid, especially since Module::Build::Tiny doesn't appear to support it. I'll change my spec generator to generate more modern ./Build invocations, but you might want to add some kind of early warning to M::B::T to detect and reject this legacy syntax.

You're correct. Module::Build accepts just about any argument convention under the rainbow (verbose=1, --verbose, --verbose 1, --verbose=1, --no-verbose, --noverbose, --no_verbose). Module::Build::Tiny is a bit stricter in what it accepts (as is the Build.PL spec). Show quoted text

You're the first to be bit by this, but I suppose I could handle this better. Leon

We're seeing the same on Debian; I'm just trying to package M::B::T but this seems like a showstopper; changing the build tools to pass params with -- or requiring all packages to do it manually instead of using our packaging helpers probably doesn't work out ... So any change that also accepts key=value options would be appreciated. Cheers, gregor, Debian Perl Group

What part of changing the build tools is a showstopper? Trouble getting it into Wheezy at this stage? Technologically it shouldn't be too hard, right? Show quoted text

That's not a trivial change, given it involves reinventing getopt badly. Nor is it particularly desirable from an implementation POV, given it only complicates matters. Leon

wheezy is released anyway, and M::B::T will never reach it, so there's no problem here :) Show quoted text
> Technologically it shouldn't be too hard, right?
In theory not really -- we'd need to get the change into debhelper and CDBS (which call perl Build.PL and perl ./Build). But then we'd also need to make sure that packages which use M::B::T build-depend on the fixed versions of debhelper or CDBS, and this is where it starts to get tedious. Show quoted text

Oh, I absolutely understand that this is not desirable ... (I looked into Getopt::Long earlier today in the hope for a config option to handle prefix-less key=value options but didn't find anything. Looping over @ARGV, splitting args on '=' and adding them to $opt{config} worked in a quick test but I assume you want to avoid such a nastiness :)) Cheers, gregor

Fixing CDBS seems easy enough. Don't see where debhelper needs a change, nor does it look like code I'd really want to touch. Show quoted text

Sounds like our configure-requirements issue. Modern practice has become to always use it, which does kind of help on the long run. I think this can be fixed on a dh-make-perl level though. Show quoted text

Considering --install_path lib=/foo/bar/ is currently already legal and that order can matter for precedence, any two phase approach is doomed. Leon

Ack, should be just /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/perl-build-vars.mk. Show quoted text

/usr/share/perl5/Debian/Debhelper/Buildsystem/perl_build.pm equally easy Show quoted text

Sure, the issue is just that Debian has no centralized way to just switch things. Show quoted text

Yes. And then people need to use the fixed version :) (Maybe a lintian check module-build-tiny-needs-newer-debhelper-or-cdbs would help.) Show quoted text

Yeah, I'm afraid we have to take the long road ... BTW: You mentioned earlier in this bug report a Build.PL spec; I'm not really sure what you were referring to, could you give me a pointer?

Yeah, it's fairly straightforward, though it's also pointing out that clean/realclean isn't currently specced, but perhaps it should be. Show quoted text

I see. Yeah that should be fixed too. Show quoted text

Module::Build::Tiny will soon not be the only one anymore. It's more a next-gen-perl-build-tool thing. Show quoted text

D'oh! Of course, I should have done that immediately. You can find it at https://github.com/Perl-Toolchain-Gang/cpan-api-buildpl. Some other stuff is also relevant but may be less obvious. Lancaster consensus defines extra environmental variables for testing (https://github.com/Perl-Toolchain-Gang/toolchain-site/blob/master/lancaster-consensus.md). Leon

FYI: I've now filed bugs with patches against debhelper: http://bugs.debian.org/714544 and cdbs: http://bugs.debian.org/714542 In case you want to add something, you can just send a mail to $bugnumber@bugs.debian.org.
