  • What we do with Perl::Dist (the toolkit we use to build Strawberry) is to avoid pulling from the original sources entirely (since they are far too unreliable).

    Instead, we download the tarballs to a known-good location (I use http://strawberryperl.com/packages/ [strawberryperl.com]) and then the Alien/etc module hardcodes in that path instead.

    Since you aren't modifying the tarball, there should be no legal problems.

    • I wouldn't be modifying the WebKit tarball, but I did modify the Microsoft gdiplus headers. That would probably make them a no-go for making available elsewhere; I suppose the best I could do would be a script to apply my changes to a set downloaded from the MS site.

      gdiplus is only needed for compiling with wxGraphicsContext though, which isn't actually required (as I'd thought), wxDC will do. I'll probably try putting a WebKit tarball up somewhere, depending on what it look like when the build system changes in the next week or so.
