this PKGBUILD needs updating to prevent installation in user's home folder, see example at

The the build function doesn't reset the local::lib env variables, so the installed files might not end up in the correct lib dirs.

Before executing Makefile.PL in build() you need:

# Set env variables to overwrite any existing options we don't want and
# specify the vendor destination
PERL_MB_OPT="--installdirs vendor --destdir '$pkgdir'" \

You can get more info here:

@bidulock Thanks, I've updated the PKGBUILD with the one you provided.

As for the license, it does appear to be under the GPL:

perl-file-which is way past 0.05, make the dependency just perl-file-which.

bidulock commented on 2013-04-14 10:27

perl>=5.5.30 is in base. Remove the dependency.

bidulock commented on 2013-04-14 10:25

The license does not include GPL, it is PerlArtistic only.

What I mean to say is $_dist includes $srcdir. $srcdir cannot be referred to outside build() check() or package() functions.

bidulock commented on 2013-04-14 10:22

Also you cannot refer to variables outside of the function such as you are doing with $_dist.

This package will no longer build. You can no longer refer to $pkgdir from any function other than package() in makepkg 4.1.0.
