Description of problem:
perl.req, which parses perl files to figure out their requirements, does not 
get requirements of this form (which are fairly common): 
use base 'SomeModule'; 
This is a common way to inherit from SomeModule.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

package Derived; 
use base 'Parent'; 
2. Run /usr/lib/rpm/perl.req on it. 

Actual Results:  perl(base) 

Expected Results:  perl(base)

I put something like this in the HEAD, long time ago (about six months ago).
I don't remember if I only added it to Chip Turners or also to the default one.


Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2005-07-13 10:16:13 UTC
Change was to, not perl.req.

I've changed the default macros to use, not perl.{req,prov} (which will be
phased out entirely very soon now) in rpm-4_4 cvs. Should be in rpm-4.4.2-0.8 when built.
