I cannot seem to get it to build. Looks like a missing dependency for testing?

wxWidgets 3.0.4 seems to be installed in '/usr', so it should be safe to
answer 'no' to the following question:

This should depend on perl-lwp-protocol-https. It should also makedepend on perl-test-pod and perl-test-pod-coverage.

Update on 'perl-module-build':

This module was packaged as part of core/perl<5.22.
Since upgrade to perl 5.22 it is in seperate package:

I had to install 'perl-module-build' to build this package correctly:
otherwise it created package to be installed to subdirectory of my home dir, instead the filesystem root.

It's not in 'base-devel' group, so should be at least in makedepends.

I have changed all my upstream links to metacepan eg.
Then used rssmix to get notifications about new releases with this just written script: so now every perl package should notify me to update it :]

wxgtk (3.x) is now used (no need for recompilation if it already works, but may solve GUI issues)
wxgtk2.8 can be still used, just replace wxgtk to wxgtk2.8 in deps and uncomment "HAX" which will make alien compile against 2.8 (3.x can be installed at the same time)
Compilation order:
perl-alien-wxwidgets → perl-wx → any package depending directly on perl(-alien)-wx
Follows this whenever You get random segfault due to wx GUI

It has come to my attention that my using the aur-cloud to edit my comments has conflicted those of you that are subscribed to receive emails. Please except my profound apology.

I was repeatedly, and on demand, able to (re-)create the 'pull and compile of WX' with the existing PKGBUILD structure. (Yes I agree, this is not way things are *suppose* to work.)

(As I explained previously re: makedepends() ; yes I agree, this is not way makepkg is *suppose* to work.)
