Perl 5.8 requirements
|Reported by:||sigzero@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
I have tried to install rb-rubygems and ghc and on down the stack there is a requirement for Perl5.8. I am on Tiger and I have Perl5.8 (Tiger comes with it) but ports is still trying to download it and install it. Why would I need Perl to run GHC or to install a Ruby program?
Are there no requirements checks done prior to installation? How do I tell it what dependencies that I don't want it to install???
