00:14 plicease oh you are using the Perl that comes with msys2!
00:16 plicease my main goal is to get strawberry to work nice with msys2
00:16 plicease but using msys2 perl is probably also useful hrm.
00:38 sivoais Yes, I'm using the Perl with MSYS2 for now. I'm going to try getting Strawberry Perl to talk with MSYS2 a little later on. :-)
00:48 plicease I feel like msys2 perl might be the way to go with Perl on windows, but my impression that nobody was really using it.
00:52 plicease i mistated the PkgConfig.pm / msys2 issue.  the problem is not prefix, the problem is the .pc files consider / to be the msys root
00:52 plicease which is really something like c:\msys32 or c:\msys64
00:52 plicease but for strawberry PkgConfig.pm and MSYS2 to work nicely together
00:53 plicease those /usr/lib/ whatever paths need to be translated into real windows paths,
00:54 plicease these were my notes from last time:
00:54 plicease https://github.com/PerlPkgConfig/perl-PkgConfig/issues/27
00:55 plicease the alternative is to use the gcc that comes with msys2.
00:55 plicease might be able to get away with doing that just to build libfoo
00:56 plicease and stuff use the gcc that comes with strawberry to build Foo.xs
01:35 sivoais Added a comment on that issue with a possible solution using cygpath (despite the name, it is part of MSYS2)
01:40 plicease sivoais: thanks
01:40 plicease i feel like we're making progress.

14:34 plicease why do all the Win32 perl modules have to have such strange interfacces?
14:35 genio To make your life fun, of course!
15:13 plicease it does increase the variability of things I guess.
