Removing the disable-perl flag from libpurple


adamv commented Mar 7, 2013

This needs to be made optional, or tested on all of 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8.

Also, please prefix commit messages with the formula in question, such as:

libpurple: remove disable-perl flag

What OS did you test this on?


ike18t commented Mar 7, 2013

Initially I tested it on 10.8.2 and it worked no problem. After your comment I had a coworker install using the change as well on his mbp running 10.7.5 which worked no problem but another coworker who has 10.6.8 tried and it failed due to not having perl-headers installed. Since the latest versions of OSX have no problem by default would you prefer I make the option "without-perl" to accomodate the newer versions going forward or "with-perl" so it's more of an option to have it in the first place?

Thanks for doing this testing!

We should make it an option; perhaps we could default it to off on Snow Leopard (and below) only.

Hey man,

Was this what you had in mind?
