cpan/CPAN/lib/CPAN/FirstTime.pm | 4 2 + 2 - 0 !
1 file changed, 2 insertions(+), 2 deletions(-)

 provide a sensible installdirs default for modules installed from
 CPAN.

Some modules which are included in core set INSTALLDIRS => 'perl'
explicitly in Makefile.PL or Build.PL.  This makes sense for the normal @INC
ordering, but not ours.

 tweak enc2xs to follow symlinks and ignore missing @inc directories.

Bug-Debian: http://bugs.debian.org/290336

- ignore missing directories,
- follow symlinks (/usr/share/perl/5.8 -> 5.8.4).
- filter "." out when running "enc2xs -C", it's unnecessary and causes
  issues with follow => 1 (see #603686 and [rt.cpan.org #64585])

 postpone ld_library_path evaluation to the binary targets.

Modify the setting of LD_LIBRARY_PATH to append pre-existing values at the
time the rule is evaluated rather than when the Makefile is created.

This is required when building packages with dpkg-buildpackage and fakeroot,
since fakeroot (which now sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH) is not used for the "build"
rule where the Makefile is created, but is for the clean/binary* targets.

 squelch locale warnings in debian package maintainer scripts

Bug-Debian: http://bugs.debian.org/508764

The system locales are rather frequently out of sync with the C library
during package upgrades, causing a huge amount of useless Perl locale
warnings. Squelch them when running package maintainer scripts, detected
by the DPKG_RUNNING_VERSION environment variable.

Any real locale problem will show up after the system upgrade too, and
the warning will be triggered normally again at that point.

 configure cpan::distribution with correct name of html2text

Bug-Debian: http://bugs.debian.org/640479

If you use cpan from Debian you usually wind up trying to read online
documentation through it. Unfortunately cpan can't find the
html2text.pl script even though it is installed using the Debian
package 'html2text'.

Please see the attached patch for a quick fix of this issue.

[Maintainer's note: html2text in Debian is not the same implementation
as the html2text.pl which is expected, but should provide similar
functionality].

 fix cpan::firsttime defaults with nonexisting site dirs if a parent
 is writable

The site directories do not exist on a typical Debian system.  The build
systems will create them when necessary, so there's no need for a prompt
suggesting local::lib if the first existing parent directory is writable.

Also, writability of the core directories is not interesting as we
explicitly tell CPAN not to touch those with INSTALLDIRS=site.

 memoize::storable: respect 'nstore' option not respected
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Memoize(3perl) says:

                tie my %cache => 'Memoize::Storable', $filename, 'nstore';
                memoize 'function', SCALAR_CACHE => [HASH => \%cache];

        Include the ‘nstore’ option to have the "Storable" database
        written in ‘network order’.  (See Storable for more details
        about this.)

In fact the "nstore" option does no such thing.  Option parsing looks
like this:

        @options{@_} = ();

$self->{OPTIONS}{'nstore'} is accordingly set to undef.  Later
Memoize::Storable checks if the option is true, and since undef is
not true, the "else" branch is always taken.

        if ($self->{OPTIONS}{'nstore'}) {
                Storable::nstore($self->{H}, $self->{FILENAME});
        } else {
                Storable::store($self->{H}, $self->{FILENAME});
        }

Correcting the condition to (exists $self->{OPTIONS}{'nstore'}) fixes
it.

Noticed because git-svn, which uses the 'nstore' option for its
on-disk caches, was producing

        Byte order is not compatible at ../../lib/Storable.pm

 pass ld settings through to subdirectories

[rt.cpan.org #28632] fixed most issues with passing LD down to
subdirectory Makefile.PL files. However, there are some distributions
(including Wx, Par::Packer, and Verilog-Perl) that explicitly set
LD. Those still can't be overridden from the command line. Adding LD to
the PASTHRU list fixes this.

 tweak @inc ordering for debian

Our order is:

    site (5.8.1)
    vendor (all)
    core (5.8.1)
    site (version-indep)
    site (pre-5.8.1)

The rationale being that an admin (via site), or module packager
(vendor) can chose to shadow core modules when there is a newer
version than is included in core.

 disable debugperl stack extension checks for binary compatibility
 with perl

When an XS module is built without -DDEBUGGING but the interpreter is,
the debugging stack high-water mark checking on the interpreter side
doesn't work properly. This makes /usr/bin/debugperl less useful than
it could be as it can no longer use many XS module packages.

Patch the check away for now. We hope upstream will provide a Configure
option for this in the future.
