perl5 portgroup: perllocal.pod - prevent installation through perl5 portgroup ?

Reported by: tenzap Owned by:

Port: perl5


How is perllocal.pod file supposed to be installed? Some packages prevent its installation. Some install it. And in that case, if there is another package that wants to install it there will be a conflict. For example, ossp-uuid installs it which makes the gscan2pdf port that is in a PR fail because of conflict on this file. Should this file never be installed? If this is the case, could the portgroup perl5 manage this instead of having each package write this removal in the portfile?

IIRC the file should not be installed by any port, since it would cause the conflict you mention if more than one port were to install it. I don't know if there's a reason why the perl5 portgroup doesn't take care of this already.
