[PATCH] Makefile: replace perl/Makefile.PL with simple make rules




Replace the perl/Makefile.PL and the fallback perl/Makefile used under
NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER=NoThanks with a much simpler implementation heavily
inspired by how the i18n infrastructure's build process works[1].

The reason for having the Makefile.PL in the first place is that it
was initially[2] building a perl C binding to interface with libgit,
this functionality, that was removed[3] before Git.pm ever made it to
the master branch.

We've since since started maintaining a fallback perl/Makefile, as
MakeMaker wouldn't work on some platforms[4]. That's just the tip of
the iceberg. We have the PM.stamp hack in the top-level Makefile[5] to
detect whether we need to regenerate the perl/perl.mak, which I fixed
just recently to deal with issues like the perl version changing from
under us[6].

There is absolutely no reason for why this needs to be so complex
anymore. All we're getting out of this elaborate Rube Goldberg machine
was copying perl/* to perl/blib/* as we do a string-replacement on
the *.pm files to hardcode @@LOCALEDIR@@ in the source.

So replace the whole thing with something that's pretty much a copy of
how we generate po/build/**.mo from po/*.po, just with a small sed(1)
command instead of msgfmt. As that's being done rename the files
from *.pm to *.pmc just to indicate that they're genreated (see
"perldoc -f require").

While I'm at it, change the fallback for Error.pm from being something
where we'll ship our own Error.pm if one doesn't exist at build time
to one where we just use a Git::Error wrapper that'll always prefer
the system-wide Error.pm, only falling back to our own copy if it
really doesn't exist at runtime. It's now shipped as
Git::FromCPAN::Error, making it easy to add other modules to
Git::FromCPAN::* in the future if that's needed.

Functional changes:

 * This will not always install into perl's idea of its global
   "installsitelib". This only potentially matters for packagers that
   need to expose Git.pm for non-git use, and as explained in the
   INSTALL file there's a trivial workaround.

 * The scripts themselves will 'use lib' the target directory, but if
   INSTLIBDIR is set it overrides it. It doesn't have to be this way,
   it could be set in addition to INSTLIBDIR, but my reading of [7] is
   that this is the desired behavior.

 * We don't build the Git(3) Git::I18N(3) etc. man pages from the
   embedded perldoc. I suspect nobody really cares, these are mostly
   internal APIs, and if someone's developing against them they likely
   know enough to issue a "perldoc" against the installed file to get
   the same result.

   But this is a change in how Git is installed now on e.g. CentOS &
   Debian which carry these manpages. They could be added (via
   pod2man) if anyone really cares.

   I doubt they will. The reason these were built in the first place
   was as a side-effect of how ExtUtils::MakeMaker works.

Here's the non-RFC version. I think this is ready to be applied,
fixing that issue with Error.pm was easier than I thought.
