08:10 salva plicease: it still fails to build on Windows
08:10 salva see this report for instance: http://cpantesters.org/cpan/report/42a41d60-6fdd-1014-8c40-57d8de5a8c74
08:11 salva it seems that some msys utility can't handle window-style paths.
08:11 salva and specifically backslashes
08:12 salva and fails with errors like: /bin/sh: C:Perlbinperl.exe: command not found
08:14 salva what is amazing me is that it works when I build it from the git repository by hand
08:14 salva but fails when it is build using the "cpan" command
12:35 plicease curious.  seems to build with my Strawberry (ALIEN_FORCE=1)
12:35 plicease I presume this is AS Perl ?
12:44 plicease AS' own build got further: http://ppm4.activestate.com/MSWin32-x86-64int/5.22/2200/J/JO/JOHANNA/Alien-OpenSSL-0.09.d/log-20160121T120329.txt?_ga=1.202083671.750585824.1417469594
12:44 plicease but timed out later on.
13:09 plicease it seems to work with cpanm but not cpan.
13:24 plicease Looks like cpan sets the environment variable PERL which messes everything up.
13:27 plicease Work around for now is to set PERL before you start cpan
13:27 plicease But I think it would be good to add an alien_env attribute for AB::MB
13:41 salva interesting...
13:43 salva if that is the problem, it looks as something easy to work-around
13:54 plicease anybody know how to install from a local tarball using the cpan command?
19:24 nicomen at least with cpanminus you simply run 'cpanm .'
19:24 nicomen (when inside the unpacked dir)
19:25 nicomen actually it should support 'cpanm ./Some-Module.tar.gz' too
19:26 plicease unfortunately the behavior I am trying to test doesn't happen with cpanm only the cpan command
19:26 nicomen ok
19:27 jberger plicease: I'd ask in #toolchain
19:35 plicease actually "cpan ." seems to work.
19:36 plicease I was trying to install from a tarball, but that is good enough.
