Bug#463548: libppi-xs-perl: will FTBFS with perl5.10: removes usr/share/perl5 unconditionally

Package: libppi-xs-perl
Version: 0.900-4
Severity: important
Tags: patch
User: debian-perl@lists.debian.org
Usertags: perl-5.10-transition


Your package will fail to build with perl 5.10 from experimental as
debian/rules contains the following in its install-stamp target:
  rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty --parents $(TMP)/usr/share/perl5

This will fail with perl 5.10 as the MakeMaker it supplies finaly stops
creating the spurious usr/{share,lib}/perl5 directories.

It is a bit hard to test this "live" as the Build-Dependencies still
Depend on perlapi-5.8.8, which pull perl 5.8 in the build environment.

Please change the removal line to

   [ ! -d $(TMP)/usr/share/perl5 ] || rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty --parents --verbose $(TMP)/usr/share/perl5


P.S. shameless plug: if you don't want to bother, please consider
giving[1] the package to the Debian Perl Group.
