46.37_03 Mon Nov 26 14:15:34 PST 2007
5 Tests
6 - parse_version.t had wrong test count when version.pm isn't installed.
7 - Fixed some warnings in the XS module we're using for testing.
8 - "our $VERSION" test in parse_version.t was never running
9 - Quoting uses of 1.2.3 style versions in parse_version.t to protect
10 older perls.
11
12 Portability
13 - Moved the minimum required version up to 5.6.0.

156.37_02 Sun Nov 25 23:33:14 PST 2007
16 Test Improvements
17 - Added a test for a basic XS build.
18
19 Bug Fixes
20 - A refactoring in 6.37_01 broke XS compilation.
21
226.37_01 Sun Nov 25 17:05:53 PST 2007
23 Improvements
24 - Upgraded the META.yml to version 1.3 of the spec (which really
25 doesn't change anything). Thanks bdfoy.
26 - MakeMaker now always includes the required 'author' field in
27 the META.yml even if it's undef to comply with the META.yml spec.
28 - Updated ExtUtils-Install to latest version (1.44)
29 - Unified the version numbers of all modules.
30
31 Test Fixes
32 - cd() test on VMS used non-native paths. [bleadperl 31534]
33 - Removed uses of "no_plan" in tests to remain compatible with
34 old versions of Test::Harness.
35 - writemakefile_args.t had the wrong test count if version.pm isn't
36 installed.
37
38 Bug Fixes
39 - $VERSION detection code would be confused by "sub version"
40 [rt.cpan.org 30747]
41 - LINKTYPE=static will now be propagated to child builds.
42 [bleadperl 31761]
43
44 Portability Fixes
45 - Add "dragonfly" to the list of BSDish operating systems
46 - BSD detection code would not pick up bsdos or internix
47 - Fix detection of shared libperl on NetBSD [bleadperl 31526]
48

506.36 Tue Jul 3 01:06:40 PDT 2007
51 Test Fixes
52 - version.pm prior to 0.7203 caused Foo->VERSION to reformat
53 $Foo::VERSION. This caused prereq.t to fail.
54
556.35 Sun Jul 1 20:53:38 PDT 2007
56 New Features
57 * MakeMaker will now try to "use version" before parsing $VERSION.
58 This allows "$VERSION = qv(1.2.3)" to work.
59
60 Test Fixes
61 - writemakefile_args.t now works with older versions of version.pm
62
636.34 Sat Jun 30 11:06:54 CDT 2007
64 Test Fixes
65 - Accidentally hard coded the version of strict.pm [rt.cpan.org 27838]
66
676.33 Fri Jun 29 17:15:34 CDT 2007
68 New Features
69 * VERSION now accepts version objects without warning.
70 [rt.cpan.org 26075]
71
72 Bug Fixes
73 - Properly not installing MANIFEST.SKIP when ExtUtils::Manifest is not
74 being installed. [rt.cpan.org 21318]
75 - fixin() no longer clobbers $/ [rt.cpan.org 26234]
76 - Fixed bug finding cross-compiled perls [bleadperl 31404]
77 - Looking up to 8 levels up to find uninstalled perls
78 [bleadperl 30932]
79 * A test failure in a sub-project would not cause "make test" to
80 fail. [rt.cpan.org 27804]
81
82 Windows
83 - Embed manifest files in EXEs and DLLs when building with VC++ 8.x
84 [bleadperl #29266] [rt.cpan.org 26208]
85 - Improved the subdir command code so DIR can do more than one level
86 down. [rt.cpan.org 25180]
87 - Fix static builds on Win32 by using -DPERLDLL [bleadperl 31229]
88
89 VMS
90 - Use linker flags rather than compiler flags to determine if the
91 perl sharable image was linked debug. This keeps OPTIMIZE from
92 confusing things. [rt.cpan.org 25268]
93 - Accidental use of $\ in a regex. [bleadperl 30521]
94
95 BSD
96 - If calling perl causes MakeMaker to emit warnings, then it
97 cannot find the location of its binary. [rt.cpan.org 23178]
98
99 Doc Improvements
100 - Typo fixes. $(TOUNIX) -> $(TO_UNIX). [rt.cpan.org 23495]
101 - The example for setting $VERSION from $Revision$ in SVN was
102 incorrect. (Thanks to ROBERTMAY@cpan.org) [rt.cpan.org 26995]
103 - Document what's wrong with PREFIX and what to use instead.
104 [rt.cpan.org 12919]
105 - Improve the PREREQ_FATAL docs to make it really clear that you
106 do NOT want to use this!
107
108 Misc
109 - Provide information during the install about whether we're using the
110 installed or provided dependency (ie. ExtUtils::Command).
111 - Updated included versions of ExtUtils::Manifest and Command.
112 - Add .bak and .old to veryclean [rt.cpan.org 21284]
113 - Improved the PREREQ_FATAL message.
114
1156.32 Wed Feb 21 07:59:57 PST 2007
116 New Features
117 - WriteEmptyMakefile() is now exportable upon request.
118
119 Bug Fixes
120 - Set binmode() when writing to files in Command.t for operating
121 systems which need that sort of thing. [bleadperl #29578]
122 - Fixed a minor duplication in manifypod_target(). [rt.cpan.org 22149]
123
124 Test Fixes
125 - The build_man.t test would fail if your Perl is configured to not
126 generate man pages ($Config{installman3dir} is set to none).
127
128 Doc Improvements
129 - Made the home dir install examples a little more friendly to non-Unix
130 folks.
131
132 Misc
133 - miniperl no longer has the Win32 functions.
134 - Turn on "use strict" where it was missing.
135

SP
1366.31 Mon Oct 9 16:54:47 PDT 2006
137 - Update our META.yml to version 1.2 of the spec.
138 * Update the SEE ALSO to mention Module::Build, Module::Install,
139 ExtUtils::ModuleMaker and Module::Starter.
140 - Fix ARCHITECTURE tag in PPD generation for 5.8 (patch taken from
141 ActiveState 819). [rt.cpan.org 20566]
142 * Bring ExtUtils::Manifest up to 1.48
143
58d32538
RGS
1446.30_04 Mon Sep 11 16:14:06 EDT 2006
145 - EXTRA_META has been undocumented as I don't like the way the
146 interface works but I don't want to hold up 6.31. It will be
147 replaced with something better next version.
148 - Added explaination of distclean behavior and instructions on how to
149 blow away anything not in the MANIFEST to the FAQ.
150 * 6.30_01 broke overrides of PM. MakeMaker would add to a user
151 suplied PM rather than simply accepting it.
152 * Document INSTALL_BASE.
153 * Added "How do I install a module into my home directory?" to the FAQ
154 * Added "How do I get MakeMaker and Module::Build to install to the
155 same place?"
156 - Moving ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap back into
157 lib/ because no independent distribution has taken them over.
158
1596.30_03 Fri Sep 1 17:03:11 EDT 2006
160 - Minor fix to Command.t for Win32.
161
1626.30_02 Fri Sep 1 15:03:55 EDT 2006
163 - Updated to ExtUtils::Install 1.41
164 * Won't scan for and build man pages when MAN3PODS is deliberately set
165 empty.
166 - Minor VMS fixes. [bleadperl@26813]
167 - VMS->one_liner must quote "--" argument. [bleadperl@27613]
168 * Split INSTALLSCRIPT into INSTALLSCRIPT, INSTALLSITESCRIPT and
169 INSTALLVENDORSCRIPT so it now honors INSTALLDIRS. [bleadperl@26536]
170 - Minor fix to work with Pod::man 2.04. [bleadperl@26457]
171 - $Revision was broken.
172 - Updated our internal version of Test::More to catch a few warnings.
173 - ExtUtils::Command::test_f() test was broken.
174 - Clarified that test_f() exits.
175

1766.30_01 Tue Aug 16 23:53:27 PDT 2005
177 * Fixed compiling modules using an uninstalled Perl on Win32 by using
178 the proper perl header location for Windows (which is different from
179 Unix). Looks like a very old bug. [bugs.perl.org 36128]
180 - $ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Revision accidentally left in a stray "Revision".
181 [thanks pdx.pm for noticing this]
182 - Fixed the $VERSION = $Revision$ example in the MakeMaker docs and the
183 FAQ. [thanks again, pdx.pm]
184 - Elaborated on the differences between CVS, SVN and others when using
185 $Revision$ based $VERSIONs.
186 * ExtUtils::Command, ExtUtils::Install, ExtUtils::Manifest,
187 ExtUtils::Mkbootstrap, ExtUtils::Mksymlists and ExtUtils::Packlist
188 are all now considered to be separate distributions. To avoid a
189 circular dependency, MakeMaker distributes its own versions but CPAN
190 should not index them and they will not overwrite a newer, installed
191 version.
192 * Added EXTRA_META option to allow module authors to append extra
193 text to the generated META.yml.
194 * Added a LICENSE field mirroring Module::Build's license.
195 * META.yml support updated to version 1.1. All required fields
196 now generated. (NOTE: 1.1 isn't yet complete but we're going with
197 it anyway. MakeMaker uses "author" instead of "authored_by" as its
198 expected the former will be used in 1.1 final).
199 * Non-conforming version_from and installdirs META.yml fields removed.
200 * META.yml distribution_type field now intelligent enough to guess at
201 the type rather than hard code 'module'.
202 * INSTALLBASE changed to INSTALL_BASE to match Module::Build.
203 * Added a MAKE parameter for Windows users to say if they're using
204 dmake or nmake.
205

RGS
2066.30 Fri May 20 16:05:38 PDT 2005
207 * PL_FILES behavior tweak again to restore old behavior. Sometimes its
208 supposed to run before pm_to_blib, sometimes after.
209 - Some tests shipped with 'no_plan' which will break on older
210 Test::Harness.
211
41e5fcb0
RGS
2126.29 Thu May 19 14:15:21 PDT 2005
213 * The behavior of PL_FILES is restored to its pre-6.26 behavior as several
214 CPAN modules depend on this. PL programs run via PL_FILES have
215 INST_LIB and INST_ARCH in their @INC and so can load any just built
216 modules.
217 - Now honors PERL_CORE environment variable.
218 - Testing to ensure FIRST_MAKEFILE is honored.
219

RGS
2206.28 Tue Apr 12 16:17:07 PDT 2005
221 - Fix realclean so it cleans up files installed from ext/ in the core
222 - Fix dir_target() so it doesn't warn should any of the INST_* paths
223 be the same (as with the ext/ modules in the core)
224 - Fix MANIFEST.SKIP so it skips not just _darcs/ but everything inside
225 it and any which happen to be in subdirs.
226 - MM_AIX forgot to import neatvalue() from E::MakeMaker.
227 (bleadperl@24185)
228 - Fixed a minor C<<>> POD nit (Scott Lanning)
229
7292dc67
RGS
2306.27 Mon Apr 4 16:36:14 PDT 2005
231 * Added _darcs to the list of revision control administrative
232 directories skipped both in libscan and in MANIFEST.SKIP.
233
2346.26_01 Mon Mar 28 21:34:39 PST 2005
235 * PL_FILES was broken in the last release. The .PL files were not being
236 passed the file they were to generate.
237 * How PL_FILES runs the programs and what it does with the value is
238 now documented.
239 * The default behavior of PL_FILES is now documented.
240
2416.26 Mon Mar 21 20:36:22 PST 2005
242
2436.25_12 Fri Mar 18 16:15:35 PST 2005
244 - Use the generic dmake search.cpan.org URL in the README so the newest
245 version is found.
246 - Fixed pm_to_blib trouble on VMS introduced in 6.25_10.
247
2486.25_11 Tue Mar 15 02:00:20 PST 2005
249 - Fixed minor parent class dependency loop in ExtUtils::MM_Any.
250 - Fixed a circular dependency on processed PL files introduced as part
251 of RT 6460 in 6.25_02.
252
2536.25_10 Sun Mar 13 16:14:04 PST 2005
254 - pm_to_blib.ts is gone, back to pm_to_blib (except on VMS). I
255 couldn't make it work and still retain backwards compatibility.
256 This fixes the recompilation problems that plagued _09 and various
257 previous alpha releases.
258
2596.25_09 Sat Mar 12 10:10:34 PST 2005
260 - Stubbing out PASTHRU on VMS. $(MMSQUALIFIERS) should do the equivalent
261 and better.
262 - Added test to check for the existence of a compiler so XS tests are
263 now possible.
264
2656.25_08 Tue Feb 8 09:04:36 EST 2005
266 - Fixing xsubpp on VMS. Had a foo/bar path in it.
267 - Turning XSUBPP into a runable command by the addition of PERLRUN
268 made it unusable as a dependency. Added XSUBPPRUN for that and left
269 XSUBPP alone.
270 - Removed DESTDIR from PASTHRU as install is not recursive and it can
271 make commands too long on VMS.
272 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all. Using
273 .exists files everywhere.
274 - Restore missing *.Opt clean on VMS.
275 - Fix .exists files accidentally getting caught in static builds.
276 - Older versions of MMS cannot handle directory targets at all.
277 - Add Interix support (bleadperl@33892)
278 - distsign target changed to distsignature to avoid clash with
279 Module::Install
280
2816.25_07 Fri Dec 31 03:47:20 EST 2004
282 - perllocal on VMS was inserting executables twice.
283 - No longer using $(IGNORE) macro. Turns out MMS/K was not honoring
284 it. Using "-$(NOECHO) command" which seems to make everybody happy.
285 - Executables with no extension weren't getting installed on VMS due to
286 a bug in rename(). Broken sometime in this series of alphas.
287
2886.25_06 Sun Dec 26 17:21:37 EST 2004
289 - Forgot to define BOOTDEP macro.
290 - .exists files are back. Directories cannot be used directly as
291 targets as their mod time changes too frequently.
292 * Added INSTALLBASE as an alternative to PREFIX but haven't documented
293 it yet. I'll do that next release.
294
2956.25_05 Wed Dec 22 07:59:02 EST 2004
296 - One of the 6.25 alphas broke BSD make. It doesn't like "- @ command".
297 Fixed by adding an $(IGNORE) macro.
298 - 6.25 alphas caused a Makefile to be added to the dist. Fixed.
299 - The new cd() code needed to be dependent on dmake or nmake for
300 Windows. Not Win9x vs WinNT/XP.
301
3026.25_04 Tue Dec 21 00:53:06 EST 2004
303 - 6.25_03 was always rebuilding XS modules.
304
3056.25_03 Mon Dec 20 23:04:22 EST 2004
306 - dir_target() is back. Now each directory to be created has its own
307 target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files. This
308 ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
309 things like SVN's perl bindings.
310
3116.25_02 Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
312 - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
313 macro definitions. Necessary for challenged make implementations
314 like nmake. Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
315 [rt.cpan.org 4545]
316 - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
317 directories instead of files. [rt.cpan.org 6851]
318 - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
319 we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
320 - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
321 several other things. I think this was broken by 6.18.
322
3236.25_01 Fri Dec 17 21:29:04 EST 2004
324 * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
325 * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory. It will
326 only appear in the distdir. This should make it easier on developers,
327 they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
328 * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build
329 directory. It will only be generated in the distdir.
330 - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
331 - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
332 This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl. Thanks to
333 Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.
334
5dca256e
RGS
3356.25 Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
336 - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL. Build.PL is now
337 ignored. [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
338 - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
339
3406.24_01 Thu Dec 9 00:44:48 EST 2004
341 - Docs encouraged possibly insecure use of /tmp [CAN-2004-0976 via Debian]
342 - Remove empty rpath from .so files [bleadperl@23183]
343 - At long last the core man page title has its apostrophe.
344 - BeOS tests fixed [Ingo Weinhold] [perlbug #32717]
345 - Putting a pm_to_blib target back (alias of pm_to_blib.ts) in case
346 anyone was depending on it being there (mod_perl was).
347
3486.24 Tue Nov 30 15:35:13 EST 2004
349 - dir_target() was accidentally named dir_targets() causing problems
350 installing some Tk modules.
351
3526.23 Fri Nov 26 16:01:50 EST 2004
353 - MM_MacOS lost its $VERSION causing some CPAN indexing problems. Enough
354 people noticed this to warrant a quick release.
355
3566.22 Tue Nov 23 22:22:22 EST 2004
357 - Minor glitch in Command.t test on Win32 [thanks Steve Hay]
358 * Fixed MANIFEST.SKIP so it avoids all the new *.ts files.
359 - Don't spuriously define pasthru arguments
360
3616.21_03 Sat Apr 3 2004
362 - pm_to_blib and blibdirs stamp files now pm_to_blib.ts and blibdirs.ts
363 everywhere because some filesystems insist you have a dot in the
364 filename. This eliminates a bunch of special case code.
03c94fc2
RGS
365 - Minor potential glitch in the version check logic.
366 - Making Makefile rebuild logic more resistant to inconsequential
367 errors when cleaning up things that are going to be rebuilt anyway.
368 - Adding SCCS to the list of directories in MANIFEST.SKIP.
5dca256e
RGS
369 * Fixing blibdirs so it doesn't rebuild every make run.
370 * Using a more conservative MAX_EXEC_LEN for Win98 to allow building
03c94fc2 371 large modules like Encode. [Greg Matheson]
5dca256e 372 * test target mangled by dmake. Doesn't seem to like q{}.
03c94fc2
RGS
373 [Greg Matheson]
374 - instmodsh now using Archive::Tar to create archives if available.
375 [Slaven Rezic]
376 - instmodsh now using more portable tar flags to create archives.
377 [Slaven Rezic]
378 - Added FAQ entry for "How do I use a module without installing it?"
379 and "How do I keep from installing man pages?" [Joe Cromie]
5dca256e
RGS
380 - Fixed finding the default MANIFEST.SKIP if its on a different volume
381 [Ilya Zakharevich]
382 - When building Perl, we had a chance of picking up the old installed
383 xsubpp from @INC [Andreas Koenig]
384 - makeaperl() now a bit more intellegent about ignoring perl libraries
385 not called libperl. [Ilya Zakharevich bleadperl@22032]
386 * MacOS Classic (MacPerl) is no longer supported. Please use
387 Module::Build instead.
388 * Restored pm_to_blib.ts so pm_to_blib generation will be quiessent on
389 VMS. [rt 4675]
390 - For simplicity, dir_target() is now a no-op. Should not effect any
391 existing uses.
392 - Converted utility commands from using $(PERLRUN) to $(ABSPERLRUN).
393 This allows distclean to work with SDBM_File. [rt 5616]
394 - realclean was using "rm -f" instead of "rm -rf" meaning directories
395 wouldn't be properly cleaned. Caused by bleadperl@7952. [rt 5208]
396 - fixpath() could undo wraplist() on VMS [rt 4955]
397 - ensure ExtUtils::Command::rm_f deletes all versions of a file on VMS
398 [rt 4687]
399 - hint.t generating improperly named hint files on OS's where $^O
400 contains a '.'. They should be converted to underscores. Test
401 mistake, not a bug. [rt 5365]
402 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::chmod() so it will work on directories on
403 VMS. [rt 4676]
404 - parse_version.t was using no_plan causing trouble on older T::Hs.
405 [rt 5633]
03c94fc2 406
af7522e5 4076.21 Tue Nov 11 00:12:56 PST 2003
03c94fc2 408 - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl instead of
af7522e5
RGS
409 PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE. Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
410 (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
411 - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target(). Restored a version
412 for backwards compatibility.
413 - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section. Lots of
414 modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.
415

RGS
4166.20 Thu Nov 6 02:25:58 PST 2003
417 - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin. In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
418 take a more conservative approach.
419 - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
420 - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3. No real bug [rt 4290]
421 - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]

426 - Removed 00setup_dummy.t and zz_cleanup_dummy.t. Tests now setup and
427 teardown the dummy modules as needed.
428 - Little test glitch on systems without $Config{usevendorprefix} set
429 - INSTALL(SITE|VENDOR)MAN*DIR now fall back to $(INSTALLMAN*DIR)
430 instead of copying its value. This lets "perl Makefile.PL
431 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/some/man/man1" work like expected.

4336.18 Mon Nov 3 20:09:51 PST 2003
434 - parse_version() was blowing over $_ (Ilya Zakharevich)
435 - 5.6.2 has the same Cygwin shared lib name fix as 5.7.0. (Gerrit Haase)
436 * When $Config{install(site|vendor)man*dir} aren't set it will now
437 fall back to $Config{installman*dir}. Similar for
438 $Config{install(site|vendor)bin}. This preserves behavior for older
439 Perls.
440 * Eliminated the dependency on perl.h for pure-perl builds.
441 * Eliminated .exists files. Added blibdirs target using MKPATH instead.
442 - Removed now unused dir_target() method.
443 - Added a little documentation to instmodsh.
444 * Made sure PREFIX always has something in it. Module authors like to use
445 it when extending MakeMaker. Currently using one of
446 PERL/SITE/VENDORPREFIX based on the value of INSTALLDIRS.
447 * Added SIGN to generate module signatures with cpansign (Autrijus Tang)
448 - Slight tweaks to MAKEFILE_OLD and MAKE_APERL_FILE restoring a mistake
449 made around 6.06 to fix static builds on OS/2
450 - Added ExtUtils::Command::dos2unix()
451 * manicopy() would make the copied files read-only if 'cp' was used.
452 * Fixed prereq check for modules which are also keywords like if.pm and
453 open.pm (Autrijus Tang)
454 - Made ExtUtils::Command mv and cp return whether or not they succeeded.
455 * metafile_addtomanifest now mentions what its doing.
456 * metafile will not die if it can't write to META.yml, just emit a
457 warning. This lets 'make dist' continue with a read-only META.yml
458 - Small fix to identify UWIN on NT (Randy Sims)
459 * metafile will not touch the META.yml if it does not need to be changed
460 (Thanks to Tim Bunce for this idea)
461 * Fixed 'make uninstall' which looks like its been broken since last
462 November and nobody noticed.
463 - Fixing minor bug in VMS prefixification logic when PREFIX was not set
464 by the user.
465 - Fixing potential bug in prefixification for relative directories
466 * Documented UNINST=1

469 - Fixing LD so it can be set properly on Win32. (Orton Yves)
470 * Fixing the init_PERL() "tack $Config{exe_ext} onto $^X" logic so
471 it works on VMS allowing $^X to be found.
472 * Fixing make install UNINST=1 on Windows so it can search PERL5LIB
473 (Orton Yves)
474 - Fixing "could not open MANIFEST" test for OS/2 (and probably others)
475 where a read-only file cannot be deleted.
476 - Hacking around the fact that when built for debugging, VMS creates
477 ndbgperl.exe.
478 - Eliminating the never implemented "help" argument.

4806.16 Mon Aug 18 01:39:51 PDT 2003
481 * Fixing the max exec length for Windows to account for old
482 versions of nmake (the one you can download for free from MS).
483 - Hack to normalize //foo//bar paths in ExtUtils::Installed.
484 [Sreeji K Das]
485 * Adding Module::Build utility files to MANIFEST.SKIP
486 - PREREQ_PRINT is supposed to exit after dumping. (Wolfgang Friebel
487 bleadperl@20530)
488 - maniadd() was trying to open the MANIFEST even if it didn't need to
489 causing unnecessary errors for read-only MANIFESTs (rt.cpan.org 3180)

492 - Make FIXIN on Win32 use the new pl2bat rather than an already
493 installed one when building the core (Mattia Barbon)
494
4956.14 Sun Aug 3 16:23:27 PDT 2003
496 - Adding a reference to the Module::Build META.yml spec in the META.yml
497 itself and the metafile documentation.
498 - Removed Begin/End comments from manifypods that were getting in the
499 way of users adding code to the manifypods target.
500 - Putting a POD2MAN macro back as an alias to POD2MAN_EXE and using
501 it instead of POD2MAN. This allows people to generate their own man
502 installation targets in a backwards compatible way.
503 * Adding reference to the Module::Build META file spec in the docs.

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

512 - Should any of your prefixes be /, MakeMaker might lose this and
513 prepend your prefix as "prefixyour/directory" rather than
514 "prefix/your/directory" (Ed Moy bleadperl 20283)
515 - Reversing "realclean was duplicating work already done by clean"
516 (CVS 1.124 MM_Unix.pm). Turns out it wasn't a duplication and this
517 was causing INST_* files to be left behind if your INST_LIB wasn't
518 blib/* as in the perl core. realclean now removes the files copied
519 to INST_*.
520 - Eliminating xsubpp_version(). No longer relevant. It was checking
521 for a feature added to xsubpp before 5.003_07 and doing it in a
522 really bizarre way.
523
5246.11 Thu Jul 24 01:24:37 PDT 2003
525 - Small grammatical doc touch up by Sean Burke
526 - Making basic.t clean up better after itself so it can be run
527 twice without setting up and cleaning up Big-Dummy again.
528 * Noting where to find make in the README
529 * Noting that MakeMaker does not produce a GNU make compatible Makefile
530 on Windows.

533 * $Config{installvendorman*dir} was being ignored and our default
534 always used. [rt.cpan.org #2949]
535 * Setting NORECURS to true was still resulting in a Makefile which
536 tried to recurse into subdirectories which contained a Makefile.PL
537 (it simply wouldn't have run them to generate Makefile's).
538 This appears to be a rather old bug.
539 [rt.cpan.org #2951]
540 * [rt.perl.org #4345] Arguments passed to WriteMakefile() would get
541 stopped upon by $self->{PARENT} in recursive builds in the process
542 of prepending a .. onto it.
543 - Command.t now using its own temp directory when testing
544 expand_wildcards() so no stray files confuse it.
545 * No longer warning about 'postamble' attribute.
546 - Added installvars() to list INSTALL* variables so we don't keep
547 repeating the list all over the code.
548 - Added init_DEST() to create DESTINSTALL* variables for installing
549 with DESTDIR set.
550 * DESTDIR + PREFIX now does not duplicate DESTDIR. [Redhat #91892
551 and part of rt.cpan.org #2954]
552 * DESTDIR is now not directly prepended to the INSTALL* variables.
553 installation targets now use DESTINSTALL* instead. This prevents
554 the DESTDIR from showing up in places it shouldn't like perllocal.pod.
555 DESTDIR is still appearing in .packlist (bug). [rt.cpan.org #2954]
556 - MM_VMS->prefixify() wasn't honoring the %Config_Override causing
557 some MakeMaker generated config variables to be ignored.
558 - MM_VMS->prefixify() was only VMSifying part of its filepaths causing
559 internal comparisions to get confused and think it had to prefixify
560 when it didn't.
561
5626.10_07 Sat Jul 5 16:12:52 PDT 2003
563 * Fixing location of perllocal.pod so its always in INSTALLARCHLIB
564 instead of one for each perl, site and vendor.
e3aa3ecb
MS
565 - Sun's make treats escaped newlines oddly. Switching oneliner() back
566 to using multiple -e's.
567 * Bug in libscan() meant that any .pm containing RCS or CVS or SCCS
568 in its name (for example, RCS.pm) would be skipped.
569 - Command.t was getting confused in the core because it was reading
570 files from the core t/ directory, not MakeMaker's t/ directry.
571 - MM_OS2 PERL_ARCHIVE_AFTER test wrong for a.out systems (Ilya)
1b0fc073
JH
572 - Fixing perllocal.pod and XS installation on VMS. An extraneous
573 newline was introduced when changing the install macros over to
574 $(ECHO).
575 - Added $(ECHO_N) macro to emulate 'echo -n'

5776.10_06 Sat Jun 7 00:55:29 PDT 2003
578 - Whoops, Liblist.t busted on VMS after I turned strict on in
579 ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid. Merely a test bug, not a real bug.
580 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure so the proper error shows.
581 - Fixed metafile_addtomanifest failure diagnostic leaking out during
582 the basic.t test on Windows.

585 * Documenting META.yml, NO_META
586 * Documenting the fact that distdir will auto generate META.yml and
587 alter your manifest.
588 * Adding META.yml autogeneration to the FAQ
589 - Recognizing comments with leading whitespace in MANIFESTs better.
590 - Small ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid problem on VMS (Craig Berry)
591 * Fixed "make install UNINST=1". Appears to have been broken somewhere
592 around 6.06_01.
593 - Documented the fourth argument to ExtUtils::Install::install()
594 - install() will now honor a PERL5LIB change between ExtUtils::Install
595 loading and install() running when uninstalling shadows.
596 - META.yml generation deals gracefully when the MANIFEST is read-only
597 (Slaven rt.cpan.org 2723)
598 - Fixing tests on limited dir depth VMS systems by moving the
599 dummy-install dir one level up (Craig Berry rt.cpan.org 2747)

602 - Working around BSD threaading bug in version check. [from bleadperl]
603 - Added the Makefile to the dist dependencies. (Slaven Rezic)
604 - Reversing the find_perl() version check failure warning introced in
605 6.10_03. Too talkative, warned when nothing was wrong.
606 * Fixing META.yml auto-addition when there's no newline at the end
607 of the MANIFEST [rt.cpan.org 2444]
608 * Making it a bit more obvious in the MANIFEST where META.yml comes from.
609 - Fixed $_ clobbering in ExtUtils::Manifest functions.
610 - [rt.cpan.org 2591] some LD_RUN_PATH thing (Marek Rouchal)
611 - Added core.\d+ files to 'make clean' [rt.cpan.org 2543] (Slaven Rezic)
612 - INST_* targets were expanded too early (Stas Bekman)
613 - Adding ExtUtils::MakeMaker::bytes (bytes.pm backwards compat wrapper)
614 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it will compile on 5.5.x machines (use bytes wrapper)
615 * Reducing perldepend set of CORE/*.h dependencies to what 5.5.3 has.
616 5.5.3 should be able to compile XS again.
617 * Eliminating fakethr.h and perlsfio.h from VMS's perldepend as they
618 sometimes don't get installed.
619 - ExtUtils::Install was making a few directories even with the
620 "don't really do it" switch on (Slaven Rezic)
621 * can build static linked perl binaries again. Probably damaged in
622 6.06_01 when $self->{MAKEFILE} became FIRST_MAKEFILE. (Nick Clark)
623
6246.10_03 Fri Apr 11 00:21:25 PDT 2003
625 * Added NO_META WriteMakefile() option to suppress generation of
626 META.yml. (Spoon, rt.cpan.org 2359)
627 - Spurious linebreak in uninstall_from_sitedirs on VMS (Craig Berry)
628 * A bit after 6.05 man page names would come out as lib::Foo::Bar
629 if the module name didn't contain a ::. Found with podulators.
630 Fixed.
631 * Skipping installation of RCS ,v files.
632 * 'make ci' was busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01. Fixed. (Andreas)
633 - 'make test' was broken when there's no tests. Introduced in 6.06_03.
634 (Stas Bekman)
635 - Solving some directory depth problems in tests on oldish VMS systems.
636 (Craig Berry)
637 - Fixing MM_MacOS so it compiles on UTF-8 systems. (Jarkko)
638 - Making find_perl() more talkative when the version check fails
639 miserably.
640 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE on VMS so XS can compile again (Craig Berry)
641
6426.10_02 Mon Apr 7 00:57:15 PDT 2003
643 * Removed 2>&1 experiment introduced in 6.10_01 for all non-Unixen
644 except for OS/2. Thought Perl might emulate `... 2>&1`. It doesn't.
645 Just on OS/2.
646
6476.10_01 Sun Apr 6 19:31:42 PDT 2003
648 - Making install "Skip ... (unchanged)" message happen consistently
649 - Checking file sizes as well as modification times when deciding
650 to skip installing a file.
651 - OS/2 was using $(RM) instead of $(RM_F) (Ilya)
652 - OS/2 needs .dll removed on failed build (Ilya)
653 - fixin() was assuming that rename() can overwrite the target (Ilya)
654 - manifypods target was empty if there are no pods to manify. Put in
655 at least $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
656 - Cygwin test to check for finding pod2man when building the perl core
657 removed. No longer relevent.
658 - Small fixes for dmake (Mattia Barbon)
659 * Added "Reporting bugs" section to the PATCHING doc.
660 - Minor bug in compile test missed ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid
661 - Removing $(VERSION_FROM) from Makefile dependency. It was too
662 annoying to rebuild the Makefile every time the module changed.
663 Mentioned it in the FAQ instead.
664 - Fixing PERL_ARCHIVE macro on VMS. Apparently it never appeared
665 properly before. (Craig Berry)
666 - Fixing ECHO on dmake.
667 - Adding os_flavor() and os_flavor_is()
668 - Making basic.t error output combine STDOUT & STDERR for easier
669 reading.
670 * ExtUtils::Manifest will now work case insensitively.
671 - Fixed 'subroutine redefined' warnings in 00compile.t
672 - Fixed it so typemaps are only looked for in the perl core library.
673 * Hacking around VMS filesystem problems reconstructing package names
674 from filenames in ExtUtils::Installed. (Jesper Naur)

680 - Syncing into bleadperl. Minor nits revealed...
681 - AutoSplit open filehandle bug was fixed in bleadperl. Averted a
682 warning because of this.
683 - hint files were only being loaded if . happened to be in @INC.
684 A bug/feature of File::Spec was stripping off the current dir from
685 the front of hintfile paths causing Perl to look for them in @INC.
686 Worked around.
687 - Now checking $! for errors if a hint file returns undef
688 - compile test was testing all of perl! Scaling back to just ExtUtils/
689
6906.06_04 Sun Mar 30 20:34:39 PST 2003
691 - Now looking for ExtUtils::xsubpp through @INC rather than just
692 the perl core directories. This helps ExtUtils::ParseXS.
693 - Systems which don't put their libraries under their $Config{prefix}
694 (OS X, Debian) weren't putting their libraries in the spot declared
695 in Config. It was going under $Config{prefix}.
696 - Prerequisites check now deals better with X.Y_Z style alpha versions
697 - ExtUtils::Liblist->ext() was using $Config{perllibs} which is a 5.6.1
698 thing. Falling back to $Config{libs} if perllibs isn't there.
699 - ExtUtils::Command::MM now reads from @ARGV if called with no
700 args. Makes the one liner a bit simpler.
701 * Restored ExtUtils::Liblist::ext() for backwards compatibility.
702 Missing since 5.6.1.
703 - Switching to relative dirs for self-building to shorten
704 command line lengths.
705 - Fixing minor test warning on VMS when compiling ExtUtils::Manifest
706 - Skipping STDIN read prompt() tests on 5.5.3. Can't test due to
707 eof() not honor tied handles.
708 - Config.pm on 5.5.3 doesn't have any concept of vendor*. This was
709 causing warnings when generating the Makefile.
710
7116.06_03 Sat Mar 29 19:44:53 PST 2003
712 - Added AUTHOR and ABSTRACT_FROM info for ppd generation.
713 - Added echo() method to portably echo text to a file.
714 - Worked around 5.8.0 eval 'require Foo::Bar' bug causing MakeMaker
715 to think modules weren't installed.
716 - Modernized VMS doc_*_install targets
717 - Changed some $(PERL) -e "print ..." code to use $(ECHO).
718 - Replaced uses of Delete/NoLog/NoConfirm with $(RM_F) in MM_VMS
719 - Fixed some duplicate macros making MMS happy.
720 - Fixed $ExtUtils::MM_VMS::Revision. It was just the $VERSION before.
721 - Fixed ExtUtils::Command::MM::perllocal_install(), uninstall(),
722 warn_if_old_packlist().
723 * Pulling File::Spec::VMS::fixpath() and eliminate_macros() into MM_VMS
724 as the new cannonical location. They never should have been in F::S
725 in the first place.
726 * ExtUtils::Command::eqtime() would truncate the file being equalized!
727 Holdover from exclusive .exists usage.
728 - Cleaned up hard coded 'echo' and '@' to $(ECHO) and $(NOECHO)
729 - $(SAY) is now $(ECHO) on VMS
730 - Moved rogue initializations from tools_other() to init_others()
731 - Normalized MM_VMS's tools_other() to mostly use its superclass.
732 - split_command() was off-by-one when calculating max command line
733 lengths causing it to run over on VMS
734 - made split_command() a bit smarter, taking into account some macro
735 expansion
736 - Fixed initialization of OBJECT, DISTNAME and LDFROM on VMS
737 - Fixed *_install target uses of File::Spec.
738 - Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::vmsish wrapper around vmsish so MM_VMS
739 can be compiled on non-VMS machines. For testing.
740 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::Tutorial about writing modules with
741 MakeMaker.
742 - Removed "always use h2xs" dogma.
743 - Added compile & POD test
744 * 'make distdir' now generates META.yml module meta-data file.
745 Proof of concept. Have to syncronize with Module::Build.
746 * Added maniadd() to ExtUtils::Manifest to add entries to the MANIFEST
747 * ExtUtils::Command::chmod was not interpreting file permissions as
748 octal. Also, docs & tests slightly wrong (thanks Stas Bekman).
749 - ExtUtils::Install was hard coding blib/lib and blib/arch, unportable
750 [perl #21526]
751
7526.06_02 Mon Dec 23 20:39:57 PST 2002
753 * Lots of Win32 fixes busted between 6.05 and 6.06_01.
754 * split_command() tests still not happy on Win32. Problems with
755 shell vs Makefile escaping makes testing difficult.
756 * VMS still broken. Need to convert File::Spec method calls back to
757 object method calls so the weird FS::VMS->eliminate_macros() and
758 fixpath() work again.
759
7606.06_01 Thu Dec 19 00:14:49 PST 2002
761 - Andreas found that when building the core it is desirable for
762 MakeMaker to use a relative path to perl.
763 - File::Spec->catfile() has a bug where the resulting file may not be
764 canonicalized. This was causing problems when generating manpaths.
765 MakeMaker now uses its own fixed override for catfile().
766 - Fixed the POD recognition regex to properly catch /=head\d/ tags.
767 * Added a PATCHING guideline document.
768 - Updated the class hierarchy in NOTES.
769 - Installed.t now cleans up after itself better.
770 - Steve Purkis rewrote the manifypods system to use Pod::Man
771 rather than pod2man. Its now portable and manifypods() moved from
772 MM_Unix to MM_Any. As a result, lots of icky and redudant code went
773 away. This also removes the POD2MAN macro, but noone should be
774 using that.
775 - "make manifypods" now works on Win32
776 - "make manifypods" is now be faster
777 - Made MM_Unix->find_perl more portable. Eliminated MM_Win32->find_perl
778 override. MM_VMS->find_perl remains.
779 * find_perl() can now handle filenames with spaces in them (RT448)
780 * find_perl() on Win32 no longer produces spurious "File Creation error"
781 messages (perlbug ID 20020709.001)
782 - Removed unfinished and unused maybe_command_in_dirs()
783 - Removed dead SelfLoader cruft from MM_Unix.
784 - Fixed PPD generation when the ppd contains quotes (RT1473)
785 - Fixed PPD generation on VMS
786 - Moved Win9x specific subdir_x() code from MM_Unix to MM_Win95
787 * Craig Berry fixed hint files on VMS
788 - Added the perl_onliner() method to generate portable, safe one-liners
789 - Changing hardcoded $self->{MAKEFILE} to $(FIRST_MAKEFILE).
790 * Rafael Garcia-Suarez made MakeMaker ignore Subversion control files
791 by default.
792 - Added MAKEFILE_OLD macro.
793 * No longer generating man pages by default on VMS.
794 - Improved DISTNAME docs
795 * Documented DISTVNAME and VERSION_SYM
796 * Documented dist()
797 - Seperated dist_core() into dist, tardist, uutardist, tarfile,
798 zipdist, zipfile and shdist_target methods. Allows elimination
799 of redundant code in MM_VMS.
800 - Replaced WARN_IF_OLD_PACKLIST, DOC_INSTALL and UNINSTALL
801 one-liners with ExtUtils::Command::MM functions
802 - Replaced VMS hand-rolled perl code for TOUCH, CHMOD, RM_F and RM_RF
803 with ExtUtils::Command functions. Added TEST_F.
804 - Adding clean_subdirs target and clean_subdirs_target() method to
805 generate same. This allows easier overriding of an unportable part
806 of the clean target.
807 - Defined DEV_NULL for MacOS
808 - Removed ROOTEXT from MM_MacOS, apparently unused
809 - Added $(DIRFILESEP) macro and init_DIRFILESEP to avoid
810 hardcoding / or \. Reduces code duplication in the MM_* modules.
811 - Added init_platform() and platform_constants() for OS specific
812 macros. Moved OS specific macros from constants() overrides there.
813 - Added init_VERSION() to setup various *VERSION* macros.
814 - Added default wraplist() to make porting easier.
815 - Added makemakerdflt_target() to guarantee 'all' is the default
816 target.
817 - Added special_targets() to handle things like .PHONY and make sure
818 they come first.
819 - Added init_linker() to initialize linker relatied macros.
820 - MM_MacOS constants() disolves
821 Moved MACPERL_SRC, MACPERL_LIB, MACPERL_INC from init_main() to
822 init_platform().
823 Moved DEFINE and INC tweaking from constants() to init_main()

862 - Added $(VERSION_FROM) to $(MAKEFILE) dependencies. Helpful for
863 XS builds where the version number is very sensitive.
864 - export_list(), perl_archive() and perl_archive_after() consolodated
865 into init_linker().

875 unportable part of the realclean target.
876 - Added oneliner() to create portable perl one-liners.
877 - Craig Berry found some typos in ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid's VMS part
878 * ExtUtils::Install did not work on MacPerl due to a hardcoded '.'
879 * prompt() will now read from STDIN.
880 - Craig Berry made sure extliblist() is always called even if LIBS
881 is explicitly set to empty.
882 * Added DESTDIR to make repacking easier.
883 * $(*PREFIX) are returned to the INSTALL* variables.
884 * Split $(PREFIX) into $(PERLPREFIX) and $(PREFIX). The former
885 holds the location of the core libraries. The latter is the
886 optional override prefix supplied by the user.
887 * PREFIX overrides all other *PREFIXes when set in the Makefile.PL.
888 This restores "make install PREFIX=foo".

890 - ExtUtils::MM_VMS now compilable on non-VMS platforms.
891 - J. D. Laub made MakeMaker honor $Config{installstyle}

893 Partially fixed by Ilya, should be applied universally later.
894 - Default MANIFEST.SKIP not catching files in subdirs. Fixed by Ilya.
895 - Ilya fixed ExtUtils::Liblist->ext when called outside MakeMaker.
896 - realclean was duplicating work already done by clean
897 - Adding an explicit LICENSE
898 - Cleaning up ExtUtils::Install docs.
899 - ExtUtils::Install::uninstall() now has default verbose and
900 dont_execute arguments.
901 - Added some basic ExtUtils::Install tests
902 - Fixed ExtUtils::Install::install() for relative dirs
903 - Added split_command() and max_exec_len() to deal with long
904 commands.
905 - Seperated escape_newlines() from quote_literal(). This may
906 be pointless.
907 - pm_to_blib() now generated with split_command(). 3x speedup.
908 - added init_dist() to initialize distribution constants

929 - Support OPTIMIZE in MacOS (bleadperl 17347)
930 - Support hints in MacOS (mutation of bleadperl 17347)
931 * Default man installation directories were using $(MAN*EXT) to
932 generate the directory name. This turned out to be wrong more
933 often than right, so we'll use man1 and man3 hard-coded.
934 - Debian folks fixed the doc_install targets so the Appending
935 diagnostic gives the correct directory for perllocal.pod
936 * Added ExtUtils::MakeMaker::FAQ

1257 to understand in PREFIX & LIB docs.
1258 - Put PREFIX before LIB in the docs.
1259
1260 [[ Internal Refactorings ]]
1261 - File::Spec wrappers consolidated in MM_Any
1262 - test_via_harness/script consolidated in MM_Any
1263 * Added ExtUtils::Command::MM to replace large -e "one-liners"
1264 * Added ExtUtils::MM_UWIN, took UWIN specific code out of MM_Unix.
1265 * Added ExtUtils::MM_DOS, took some DOS specific code out of MM_Unix
1266 - Added a dist() override to MM_OS2.
1267 - Took the OS/2 specific code out of MM_Unix's dist()
1268 - Starting to quote as many command line switches as possible
1269 to make VMS have to override less of MM_Unix.

12715.49_01 Mon Feb 4 00:42:40 EST 2002
1272 - Default TEST_LIBS now contains absolute paths, so tests can
1273 chdir without breaking @INC.
1274 - Some bug fixes in MM_Win32 were missing in MM_NW5.
1275 - LLIBPERL was not being set.
1276 - Gisle Aas fixed a warning in prompt when the user hits ctrl-D
1277 or pipes STDIN to /dev/null.
1278 - VMS's test is now a proper ->can check.
1279 - Stray newline in Command.t causing havoc (bleadperl 14441)
1280
1281 * Lots of internal changes. Everything from here on is an internal
1282 change.
1283 - Broke ExtUtils::Liblist::Kid out into its own .pm. Temporary.
1284 - Broke MM and MY out into their own .pm's. Possibly temporary.
1285 - Broke ExtUtils::MM_Win95 out of ExtUtils::MM_Win32. MM_Win95
1286 is now an MM_Win32 subclass.
1287 - Removed wrapper methods from ExtUtils::Liblist that were
1288 defering File::Spec loading. Almost everything uses File::Spec
1289 - Changed most of the 'our's to 'use vars' in prep for 5.005_03
1290 backporting
1291 - Changed ExtUtils::MakeMaker->import(...) cargo-cultery in MM_*
1292 modules to proper "use ExtUtils::MakeMaker qw(...)"
1293 - All non-Unix MM_* modules now directly inherit from MM_Unix.
1294 They did this before, but in a round-about way.
1295 - MM_* modules no longer directly muck with @MM::ISA. Instead
1296 @MM::ISA does that itself.
1297 - Removed unnecessary require of Exporter in many MM_* modules.
1298 - MM_Cygwin was using an MM_Unix function directly without have
1299 explicitly required MM_Unix.
1300 - Most of MM_NW5 was redundant with MM_Win32. So MM_NW5 is now
1301 a subclass of Win32 and the reduendant code has been deleted.
1302 - Replaced lots of calls to File::Spec->updir, curdir and rootdir
1303 with a global in MM_Unix. Should make things a bit faster.
1304 - Untabified ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I hate tabs.
1305 - "Which MM subclass should I use" logic moved from EU::MakeMaker
1306 to EU::MM.
1307 - Deprecated EU::MakeMaker::Version_check deleted.
1308
13095.48_04 Mon Jan 21 19:28:38 EST 2002
1310 - No longer requiring Test::More
1311 - Now tested to work with a clean 5.6.1
5c161494 1312 - Stripped out $Revision based $VERSIONs.
f6d6199c
MS
1313 - Rolled in patches from p5p, vmsperl & VOS (14325, 14338, 14360, 14364)
1314 * hint files now run in a safer context. Only $self is available.
1315 - ExtUtils::testlib now provides absolute paths into @INC.
1316 No longer obsolete
1317 - Little test fixes

13195.48_03 Thu Jan 17 23:44:38 EST 2002
1320 * moved bin/inst to bin/instmodsh
1321 * Some Win32 backporting fixes. The -x switch doesn't seem to
1322 work on Win32/5.6.1.
1323 * Bug on Win32. MAKEMAKER variable not set properly.
1324 * _02 broke hints files. Now fixed.
1325 - Minor prereq error formatting glitch
1326 - ExtUtils::testlib no longer a thin wrapper around blib, now a
1327 thin wrapper around lib like it was. blib is noisy on 5.6.1.
1328 - Nick and chromatic found and fixed some warnings in the tests
1329
13305.48_02 Wed Jan 16 19:11:26 EST 2002
1331 - Fixed some Win32 warnings. Needs more work.

MS
1334 * Adapted from bleadperl@14303
1335 * Backported to 5.6.1
1336 - inst and xsubpp moved out of lib/ and into bin/
1337 - ExtUtils::testlib obsoleted. Now a thin wrapper around blib.pm
1338 ***--> Non-Unix platforms not tested at all! Please test and report
1339 back. Tests probably only need minor fixes.
