Package: net-snmp
Version: 5.4.1~dfsg-5
Severity: important
Tags: patch
User: debian-perl at lists.debian.org
Usertags: perl-5.10-transition

This package fails to build with Perl 5.10 (currently in experimental)
because of a bugfix in Extutils::MakeMaker: it doesn't create an empty
usr/share/perl5 directory anymore.

 dh_install -plibsnmp-perl  
 dh_install: libsnmp-perl missing files (debian/tmp/usr/share/perl*), aborting
 make: *** [binary-install/libsnmp-perl] Error 1

Just removing debian/tmp/usr/share/perl* from debian/libsnmp-perl.install
should fix this without any problems with Perl 5.8.
