[ #9306 ]

Ok, I'll admit: I am notoriously impatient. Sourceforge's support-staff is pissing me off by apparently doing nothing to fix their compile farm (just yesterday one more ticket for was filed by another poor soul). I will now take appropriate actions by passing along the CIP-pools of my computer science faculty and reactive my account on of the many SUNs and WinNT machines. Just hope it will be active before weekend starts.

Yesterday I let a friend of mine (remotely controlled by me via ICQ) compile and run the tests cases for MP3::Mplib again. It was rather a hazzle since Test::Harness and Test::Simple had to be installed locally before that which made me regret to use Test::More instead of just plain Test. After that, the default C-compiler couldn't be found instead he had to fiddle with the Makefiles. It'd be nice if something like perl Makefile.PL CC=/path/to/cc would work.

Running the tests produced the same eight failures as already reported by the cpan-testers. Only that this time tests were apparently run under warnings (something which would have been my duty before releasing!) so that a lot of 'Subroutine %s redefined' messages came. I need to rename a couple of the XSUBS.

Oh, and I have a new vague plan: Perl bindings for the aalib, an ASCII art gfx library. Might be fun, albeit a bit of work. Also I haven't ever used this lib before which would cost further time. But it seems to be a worthwhile project.
