Fixed, feedback is welcome (I don't have OS X so I'm unable to test the fix).

Sorry, the site for Homebrew is: http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/

Sun 08 Aug 2010 09:41:45 PM UTC, original submission:  

Context: Using Homebrew ( http://github.com/ashb/homebrew ), a popular package manager for OSX that uses the tools OSX already comes with to install Weechat (unlike Macports that duplicates everything).

Bug: Perl plugin fails to compile.

Cause: OSX System Perl is a fat binary with 32,64 and PPC compiles but our dependencies don't have that.

ashb at #machomebrew found the cause and fixed the problem here via a patch in the package manager:

Possible fix for weechat:

In: src/plugins/scripts/perl/CMakeLists.txt

Add after 'IF(PERL_FOUND)':

STRING(REGEX REPLACE "-arch i386|-arch ppc|-arch x86_64" "" PERL_CFLAGS "${PERL_CFLAGS"})
STRING(REGEX REPLACE "-arch i386|-arch ppc|-arch x86_64" "" PERL_LFLAGS "${PERL_LFLAGS"})

This fix should probably be inside a psecific OSX block.

ashb also suggested for weechat dev to:
1) in FindPerl.cmake, and 2) inside an IF(APPLE) block
