problem reproducing perl-Error build
Thu Apr 17 03:59:00 GMT 2014
I'm listed as maintainer of the perl-Error module, and am trying to
upgrade to the 0.17022 release. However, when I try to rebuild the
0.17019 release that was done on my behalf for 64-bit cygwin, it fails:
$ cygport perl-Error.cygport fetch prep make
>>> Preparing perl-Error-0.17019-1
>>> Unpacking source Error-0.17019.tar.gz
>>> Preparing working source directory
>>> Compiling perl-Error-0.17019-1
MS-DOS style path detected: \Users\Administrator
Preferred POSIX equivalent is: /cygdrive/c/Users/Administrator
CYGWIN environment variable option "nodosfilewarning" turns off this
Consult the user's guide for more details about POSIX paths:
Created MYMETA.yml and MYMETA.json
Creating new 'Build' script for 'Error' version '0.17019'
Module::Build version 0.39 required--this is only version 0.38 at Build
*** ERROR: Module::Build build failed
This raises several questions:
1. What is going wrong in cygport and/or perl's Module::Build that is
triggering the nodosfile warning?
2. How did someone else (Yaakov?) build the 64-bit package? Why is it
not reproducible using self-hosted stock cygwin?
3. Any chance the perl Module::Build shipped in cygwin perl can be
bumped to a newer version?
