Subject: [PATCH] Makefile.PL: MANIFEST dependency fix
Date: Wed, 27 Nov 2019 12:17:42 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)

We need to force an update to Makefile (not Makefile.PL) when
MANIFEST changes.  Since "Makefile" (aka. "$(FIRST_MAKEFILE)")
is already a single-colon make target; we can't create a
double-colon rule to augment it.  So we'll continue using a
"Makefile.PL" rule, but have it recreate the resulting Makefile

Finally, change the "check" target to use "prove -b" instead of
"prove -l" so we test against "blib/lib", since what's in the
"blib" dir will be installed.

Fixes: 4c20de0694d06ff3 ("Makefile.PL: add dependency on MANIFEST contents")
