perlconfig in postinst: opinion please...
Hi. I'm packaging auto-pgp for Debian. It relies on some perl
headers. My question is this: should I rely on the correctness of
the .ph files generated when perl was installed or should I run
perlconfig in my postinst script? I had trouble getting auto-pgp to
work until I ran perlconfig but this may have simply been due to the
fact that my system is an early 0.93R5 one.
One more dumb question [we really do need updated packaging
guidelines]: Perl is part of the base system, right? Therefore, I
do not need a "REQUIRES: perl" in the control file, right? Or has
all this changed since Bruce started paring down the base system???
