#16551 closed defect (fixed)

p5-mac-carbon does not install without forcing (-f)

Reported by: febeling@… Owned by: sal@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:
Port: p5-mac-carbon


The cause is a dependency "port:p5-test-simple".

p5-test-simple overwrites files of the perl5.8 installation, and this causes the failure, if -f is not present. (test-simple depends on p5-test-harness, and that has the same problem as test-simple).

It seems that p5-mac-carbon does not really need the port p5-test-simple, so it should be removed as a dependency. There were other ports which declared test-simple as a dependency even though they didn't really need it, and this is probably just another case.

Port p5-test-simple does not provide additional packages, but rather an update of perl5.8 components. So only ports which depend on these updates have to use p5-test-simple. Many may well work without, even if they use Test::Simple package.
