This is already fixed in our SVN repository and waiting for an upload,
but I'm filing this to document the issue.
Building libsvn-notify-mirror-perl 0.03602-2 in a clean chroot fails with
t/001_basic....ok 1/0Cannot find sendmail and no "smtp" parameter specified at /usr/share/perl5/SVN/Notify.pm line 644.
# Failed test 'Directories are consistent at rev: 2'
This is because SVN::Notify wants to find a sendmail in its
new() method, regardless of whether it's going to be used.
However, the libsvn-notify-perl package currently only
The libsvn-notify-mirror-perl tests don't really need a sendmail,
so invoking them as
SENDMAIL=/dev/null $(PERL) Build test
works OK here.
