@puffybsd : needing to recompile against new perl does not make package out of date.

System Perl updated:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies) :: installing perl (5.28.0-1) breaks dependency 'perl<5.27' required by perl-sys-virt

pkg-config is part of base-devel, which needs to be loaded to build AUR packages.

Please add pkg-config as build dependency

Thanks. I can confirm that perl-sys-virt can now be installed with AUR package managers. For what it's worth, I can also verify that several of the libguestfs tools (such as virt-sysprep) work.

I think that I fixed this now for all my perl packages. I placed the dependency template in a subroutine where mksrcinfo will not find it, but where it winds up correctly in the binary. You don't see any more perl dependencies above, but the binary has.

yaourt -Sia aur/perl-sys-virt

only show dependencies on libvirt.

yaourt -Si custom/perl-sys-virt

shows libvirt perl>=5.26 perl<5.27

The new depends() added by break unofficial AUR package managers like pacaur and yaourt. Example:

$ pacaur -S perl-sys-virt
:: Package perl-sys-virt not found in repositories, trying AUR...
:: resolving dependencies...
:: no results found for perl< (dependency tree: perl-sys-virt perl)

Another example of this issue and a possible solution is described in:

Since some users may have set INSTALL_BASE in PERL_MM_OPT, you should consider adding 'unset PERL_MM_OPT' before generating the Makefile.

This works out-of-the-box:
