2 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl isntead of
3 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
4 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
5 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
6 for backwards compatibility.
7 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
8 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.

106.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
11 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
12 take a more conservative approach.
13 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
14 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
15 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
16 - metafile error message slightly mangled. Bare $! mistake confusing
17 nmake [rt 4285 4301]

20 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
21 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
22 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
23 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
24 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
25 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.
26
276.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
28 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
29 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
30 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
31 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
32 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
33 Perls.
34 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
35 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
36 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
37 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
38 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
39 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
40 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
41 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
42 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
43 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
44 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
45 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
46 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
47 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
48 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
49 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
50 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
51 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
52 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
53 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
54 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
55 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
56 November and nobody noticed.
57 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
58 by the user.
59 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
60 * Documented UNINST=1

626.17 Sun Sep 14 20:52:45 PDT 2003
63 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
64 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
65 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
66 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
67 (Orton Yves)
68 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
69 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
70 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
71 ndbgperl.exe.
72 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.

746.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
75 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
76 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
77 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
78 [Sreeji K Das]
79 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
80 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
81 bleadperl@20530)
82 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
83 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)

856.15 Sun Aug 3 16:41:05 PDT 2003
86 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
87 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
88
896.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
90 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
91 itself and the metafile documentation.
92 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
93 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
94 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
95 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
96 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
97 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

100 - Generated META.yml now has the prereqs in sorted order (Andy Lester)
101 - Arguments to child Makefile.PLs were still having .. prepended. This
102 was exposed by the earlier fix of rt.perl.org 4345.
103 - extralibs.ld (for static builds) wasn't being cleaned up.

1056.12 Tue Jul 29 22:19:38 PDT 2003
106 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
107 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
108 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
109 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
110 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
111 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
112 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
113 to INST_*.
114 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
115 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
116 really bizarre way.
117
1186.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
119 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
120 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
121 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
122 * Noting where to find make in the README
123 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
124 on Windows.

1266.10_08 Mon Jul 21 18:17:06 PDT 2003
127 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
128 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
129 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
130 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
131 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
132 This appears to be a rather old bug.
133 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
134 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
135 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
136 of prepending a .. onto it.
137 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
138 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
139 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
140 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
141 repeating the list all over the code.
142 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
143 with DESTDIR set.
144 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
145 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
146 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
147 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
148 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
149 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
150 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
151 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
152 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
153 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
154 when it didn't.
155
1566.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
157 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
158 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
159 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
160 to using multiple -e's.
161 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
162 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
163 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
164 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
165 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
166 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
167 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
168 $(ECHO).
169 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'
e3aa3ecb 170

1716.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
172 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
173 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
174 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
175 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
176 the basic.t test on Windows.

1786.10_05 Fri Jun 6 18:15:30 PDT 2003
179 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
180 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
181 alter your manifest.
182 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
183 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
184 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
185 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
186 around 6.06_01.
187 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
188 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
189 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
190 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
191 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
192 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
193 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

1956.10_04 Fri May 23 01:13:04 PDT 2003
196 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
197 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
198 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
199 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
200 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
201 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
202 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
203 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
204 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
205 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
206 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
207 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
208 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
209 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
210 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
211 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
212 sometimes don't get installed.
213 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
214 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
215 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
216 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
217
2186.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
219 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
220 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
221 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
222 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
223 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
224 Fixed.
225 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
226 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
227 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
228 (Stas Bekman)
229 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
230 (Craig Berry)
231 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
232 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
233 miserably.
234 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
235
2366.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
237 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
238 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
239 Just on OS/2.
240
2416.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
242 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
243 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
244 to skip installing a file.
245 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
246 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
247 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
248 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
249 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
250 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
251 removed. No longer relevent.
252 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
253 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
254 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
255 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
256 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
257 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
258 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
259 properly before. (Craig Berry)
260 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
261 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
262 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
263 reading.
264 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
265 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
266 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
267 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
268 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)
269
270# There was no 6.06, I jumped straight to 6.10_XX because there's been
271# so much change between 6.05 and now.

MS
274 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
275 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
276 warning because of this.
277 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
278 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
279 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
280 Worked around.
281 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
282 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
283
2846.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
285 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
286 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
287 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
288 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
289 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
290 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
291 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
292 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
293 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
294 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
295 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
296 Missing since 5.6.1.
297 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
298 command line lengths.
299 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
300 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
301 eof() not honor tied handles.
302 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
303 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
304
3056.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
306 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
307 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
308 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
309 to think modules weren't installed.
310 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
311 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
312 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
313 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
314 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
315 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
316 warn_if_old_packlist().
317 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
318 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
319 in the first place.
320 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
321 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
322 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
323 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
324 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
325 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
326 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
327 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
328 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
329 expansion
330 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
331 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
332 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
333 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
334 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
335 MakeMaker.
336 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
337 - Added compile & POD test
338 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
339 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
340 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
341 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
342 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
343 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
344 [perl #21526]
345
3466.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
347 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
348 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
349 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
350 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
351 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
352 fixpath() work again.
353
3546.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
355 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
356 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
357 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
358 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
359 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
360 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
361 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
362 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
363 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
364 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
365 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
366 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
367 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
368 using that.
369 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
370 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
371 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
372 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
373 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
374 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
375 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
376 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
377 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
378 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
379 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
380 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
381 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
382 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
383 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
384 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
385 by default.
386 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
387 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
388 - Improved DISTNAME docs
389 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
390 * Documented dist()
391 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
392 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
393 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
394 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
395 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
396 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
397 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
398 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
399 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
400 of the clean target.
401 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
402 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
403 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
404 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.

406 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
407 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.

409 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
410 target.

453 Moved .USESHELL to special_targets() override.
454 Everything else was redundant.
455
456 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
457 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
458 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
459 into init_linker().
460 - Added MM_NW5_VERSION, MM_Unix_VERSION, MM_Win32_VERSION,
461 MM_VMS_VERSION.

468 method to generate same. This allows easier overriding of an
469 unportable part of the realclean target.
470 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
471 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
472 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
473 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
474 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
475 is explicitly set to empty.
476 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
477 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
478 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
479 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
480 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
481 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
482 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".
483 - Added quote_literal() to handle some shell quoting.
484 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
485 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}
486 - Renaming on OS/2 requires the target file to be removed.
487 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
488 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
489 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
490 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean

497 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
498 commands.
499 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
500 be pointless.
501 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
502 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants

525 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
526 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
527 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
528 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
529 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod

849 reflecting its odd behavior.
850 - Replaced references to %Config with things people are more likely
851 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
852 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
853
854 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
855 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
856 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
857 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
858 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
859 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
860 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
861 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
862 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
863 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.

8655.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
866 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
867 chdir without breaking @INC.
868 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
869 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
870 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
871 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
872 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
873 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
874
875 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
876 change.
877 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
878 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
879 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
880 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
881 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
882 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
883 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
884 backporting
885 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
886 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
887 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
888 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
889 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
890 @MM::ISA does that itself.
891 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
892 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
893 explicitly required MM_Unix.
894 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
895 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
896 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
897 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
898 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
899 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
900 to EU::MM.
901 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.

907 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)

909 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
910 No longer obsolete

9135.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
914 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
915 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
916 work on Win32/5.6.1.
917 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
918 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
919 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
920 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
921 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
922 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
923
9245.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002

928 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
929 * Backported to 5.6.1
930 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
931 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
932 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
933 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
