This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.34 running under perl v5.8.0.

I'm trying to build GD 2.06 using a virgin distribution of perl 5.8.0.  It has been
complaining about not being able to satisfy the following prerequisite:
    'PREREQ_PM' => {
                    Math::Trig => 1.00,
I thought at first that it might be that 5.8.0 includes version 1.01, but
when I told it to ignore the version number and just check for the library's
existence it still failed.  Running the Makefile.PL in the debugger, and stepping
down into MakeMaker::new gives this as the result of eval'ing Math::Trig:
  DB<1> print $@
  Math/ did not return a true value at (eval 6)[/users/hartzell/gaster/lib/perl5/5.8.0/ExtUtils/] line 3, <STDIN> line 4.

and by inspection, it indeed appears that Math::Trig does not return true.

Adding a 1; after the last subroutine makes the MakeMaker stuff happy.
