[svk-devel] Building SVK from source on MacOS X

I just tried to install SVK from the latest svn sources, on MacOS X:

mini:~ pazu$ uname -a
Darwin mini.intranet.ecore.com.br 8.8.1 Darwin Kernel Version 8.8.1: Mon 
Sep 25 19:42:00 PDT 2006; root:xnu-792.13.8.obj~1/RELEASE_I386 i386 i386

I have perl 5.8.8 installed from darwin ports:

mini:~ pazu$ perl -v
This is perl, v5.8.8 built for darwin-2level

I noticed that SVK Makefile.PL was supposed to automatically install all 
dependencies if you have CPAN and Module::Install (which I do) 
available. However, after running 'sudo make', and installing lots of 
dependencies, SVK still wouldn't run. I had to manually install from CPAN:


I can see Data::Hierarchy is listed in Makefile.PL, so I don't know why 
it didn't get installed automatically. For Term::ReadKey, maybe you were 
assuming it's always installed? It isn't, at least on MacOS X.

Well, the good news is that after installing these modules, everything 
is finally working:

mini:~ pazu$ svk --version
This is svk, version 1.99_02 (using Subversion bindings 1.4.0)
