Ticket #752 (closed defect: fixed)
sdist not setting the executable bit on the configure script when Build-Type is Configure
|Reported by:||pwan||Owned by:|
I have a project with Build-Type of Configure.
I have a Makefile and configure script set in the Extra-File-Sources portion of the cabal file. The script has its executable bits set.
However, when I do a 'runghc Setup.hs sdist', the executable bits from the configure script are lost.
This is keeping folks from being able to do the normal 'tar zxvf project.gz ; ./configure ; make'. steps when building from the sdist.
The attached file is a patch to SrcDist?.hs where prepareTree checks the extra source files for the configure script, and either copies it as an executable or complains about it not being present if the package build type is Configure.
I apologize in advance for what is surely horrible noobie code
