I was building pkgsrc/print/psutils under Debian Linux and
it has USE_PERL5.
Already installed was:
$ /usr/bin/perl --version | head -3
This is perl, v5.6.1 built for i386-linux
So it also built and installed pkgsrc/lang/perl5.
By the way, I saw some errors like:
gcc: unrecognized option `-R/home/jeremy/netbsd/usr/pkg/lib'
So now this is installed too:
$ usr/pkg/bin/perl --version | head -3
This is perl, v5.6.1 built for i686-linux
Can someone explain this USE_PERL5=build versus USE_PERL5=run?
