Source: libfile-nfslock-perl Version: 1.27-1 Severity: normal User: debian-p...@lists.debian.org Usertags: debhelper-use-unsafe-inc-removal
This package FTBFS when debhelper is changed to not export PERL_USE_UNSAFE_INC to the build environment. This export was added in 2016 at the same time that '.' was removed from INC by default, to avoid breakage, but was a temporary change. As well as allowing us to (eventually) remove this export from debhelper, fixing this bug in your package will also help upstream, since this change has been made in perl 5.26 upstream. Additionally, it's possible that the problem may also exist at runtime for your package (though from experience this is less likely). Note that the rebuild testing was against a locally-modified version of debhelper, but you can get the same effect by setting debhelper compat level 11 in your package, which also removes the same export. For information about how to fix this class of issues, please refer to the upstream release notes (in particular, 'Script authors' and 'Module Authors'): http://perldoc.perl.org/perldelta.html#Removal-of-the-current-directory-(%22.%22)-from-%40INC The relevant build failure logs are below: Manifying 1 pod document "/usr/bin/perl" "-Iblib/arch" "-Iblib/lib" File-NFSLock.spec.PL File-NFSLock.spec do "Makefile.PL" failed, '.' is no longer in @INC; did you mean do "./Makefile.PL"? at File-NFSLock.spec.PL line 32. Makefile.PL: Missing WriteMakefile at File-NFSLock.spec.PL line 36. Please feel feel free to get in touch with the Debian Perl team at debian-p...@lists.debian.org if you need any more information or assistance to fix this issue. Cheers, Dominic.
