No Alien::Base::PkgConfig objects are stored error in projects without *.pc files #23

When using the current git version of Alien::Base, the error message

No Alien::Base::PkgConfig objects are stored!

is shown when using Alien::Base; it works with the current cpan version of Alien::Base.

I think the reason for this is, that the project in question is manually compiled - and there are no *.pc files. seems to have been changed to abort in case no *.pc file is found (around line 135).

Is this desired behavior?


No, it should work without them. Once again, it seems my testing environment has crept into the design. I need to find more time to work on Alien::Base, its hard with being so close to finishing my Ph.D. Sorry about this, I will try to get to it when I can.

This should be tested by Acme::Ford::Prefect

Thanks, seems to work again.
