Details

Description:
The Perl modules get installed to /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/AcidRip instead of /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current/AcidRip
and thus overwrite the symlink 5.8.8 -> current
(see http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/8231 for a similar case).

Fix:
In the PKGBUILD, perl Makefile.PL should rather be :
eval `perl -V:archname`
perl Makefile.PL \
INSTALLARCHLIB=/usr/lib/perl5/current/${archname} \
INSTALLSITELIB=/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current \
INSTALLSITEARCH=/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current/${archname}
as with standard perl packages.

I have improved a few other things in the PKGBUILD: see attachment.

Note also that "crop-fixes.patch" is currently NOT on CVS!

Additional info:
* package version(s) 0.14-3
