Could you please care to elaborate more about this "nightmare"-like
experience that you have had while installing the Perl bindings? With
Debian, is a simple matter of getting the packages, which are clearly
labelled as libgtk2-perl, libgnome2-perl, etc., conforming to the
Debian naming rules. The Debian packages has been included in Unstable
before the Perl bindings entered the Platform Bindings project.

BTW: If you meant gtk-perl, that is the Perl bindings to the GTK+
1.2.x, these are old and unmaintained - and not part of the GNOME
Platform Bindings.

But, on a side-note, I agree with your point: having a binding set and
not having a full meta-package which depends on the single bindings'
packages is wrong; but this is a per-distribution matter, and should
be resolved by each distribution.


It is against the grain of modern education to teach children to program.
What fun is there in making plans, acquiring discipline in organizing
thoughts, devoting attention to detail, and learning to be self-critical?
