  • Ticket #29054 – Description

    v12 v17  
    1 We add the lists of system packages in `distros/` of a new script package `perl_cpan_polymake_prereq` (a new dependency of `polymake`) with an `spkg-configure.m4` that checks for the prerequisites and an `spkg-install` that always fails.
     1We add the lists of system packages providing polymake's Perl prerequisites
     2so that `./configure` will include them in the list of suggested packages.

    3 Simpler than #27763 and more reliable than depending on users reading `build/pkgs/polymake/SPKG.txt`
     4At least for the distributions that provide these packages, this is more reliable than depending on users reading `build/pkgs/polymake/SPKG.txt`.

     6This is achieved by adding them in `distros/` of a new script package `perl_cpan_polymake_prereq` (a new dependency of `polymake`) with an `spkg-configure.m4` that checks for the prerequisites and an `spkg-install` that always fails.
