After the perl upgrade, all the PLISTs of our perl pkgs are broken now.
What makes this interresting to fix is that we depend on perl-* now,
allowing them to build against the "old" and "new" perl. The changes
between the perl versions include directory renamings, as
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl -> /usr/pkg/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005.
I think an appropriate way to do this is to ask perl about the various
paths, using something like this:
yui# perl -mConfig -e 'print Config::config_sh();' | grep ^site
^- new perl
smaug% perl -mConfig -e 'print Config::config_sh();' | grep ^site
^- old perl
I have to leave now, but maybe that helps someone here...
