Error trying to install extensions
I have installed Foswiki 1.1.4.
I am trying to instal extensions.
I got to the page that said
Configure extension installer will perform the following actions
Adding 33 extensions
SpreadSheetPlugin from Foswiki.org
TinyMCEPlugin from Foswiki.org
BeautifierPlugin from Foswiki.org
VarCachePlugin from Foswiki.org
WorkflowPlugin from Foswiki.org
I clicked to install and got an error
configure: Insecure dependency in open while running with -T switch at /System/Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level/IO/File.pm line 192
I looked at the Foswiki configure logs. It got this far:
-rw-r--r-- 1 _www _www 446 Jan 22 17:54 SpreadSheetPlugin-20120123-015456-Install.log
vlb@goto [...logs/configure] 123: cat S*

Running Pre-install exit for SpreadSheetPlugin ...
How should I proceed?
Is there a way to run the extension installer from the command line?
Should I just try editing bin/configure to remove
and try again?

Wherever you see Foswiki crash like this, feel free to go straight to creating a bug item directly.
I've seen some users have problems with versions prior to Perl 5.8.8, but I thought perl 5.8.8 tainting behaviour should be consistent with 5.10+.
Anyway, created Tasks/Item11521
