  • With all these 5.8.0 release candidates, I set up a script that I adapted from one Abigail [] gave me. Makes it much easier than sitting thru all the questions.
    ./Configure \
        -des \
        -Uversiononly \ \ \ \
        -Doptimize=-g \
        -Dusemorebits \
        -Dusedevel \
        -Dusenm=false \
        -Darchlib=$version_dir/lib/$version/i686-linux \
        -Dprivlib=$version_dir/lib/$version \
        -Dman1dir=$version_dir/man/man1 \
        -Dman3dir=$version_dir/man/man3 \
        -Dprefix=$version_dir \
        -Dd_attribut \
    Of course, you'll have to set $version_dir, since Abigail is the queen of multiple installs...


    • Abigail is the queen of multiple installs

      Yeah, that /opt tree at YAPC was something to behold.

      Maybe that means Abigail gets to benefit from my one and only patch to perl: a fix to MakeMaker that allowed you to do perl5.6.1 Makefile.PL instead of having to /usr/local/bin/perl5.6.1 Makefile.PL. I kind of like multiple installs myself, and that was one of the first things I ran into.
