That's fine, but I am still trying to understand why do we need a wrapper at all. As was indicated (on IRC, not sure it was mentioned in the mail threads), the ability to launch /usr/bin/perl with no perl in the system is different from the inability to launch anything at all. =Anton. -- | Anton Berezin | FreeBSD: The power to serve | | catpipe Systems ApS _ _ |_ | http://www.FreeBSD.org | | [EMAIL PROTECTED] (_(_|| | [EMAIL PROTECTED] | | +45 7021 0050 | Private: [EMAIL PROTECTED] | To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
