Ticket #31954 (closed defect: duplicate)
help2man Portfile hardcoded versions breaks some perl installations
|Reported by:||david@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
Installing newer versions of perl, as in... port install perl5 +perl5_14 +shared +threads causes hardcoded perl versions in the help2man Portfile to create subtle build errors.
It appears the maintainer may have been trying to force perl5.12 or above.
Suggest changing all occurrences of perl5.12 to perl5 which appears to resolve the problem.
Priority set to high as current state of Portfile disallows installing X11.
