But if Ref::Util is only recommended, how can compilation of Specio fail because it's missing?


that's the error's source

my $has_ref_util = eval { require Ref::Util; Ref::Util->VERSION('0.112'); 1 };

in line 21

... strange ...


OK miracle solved, my colleagues installed a $SIG{'__DIE__'} handler without caring about calls inside eval{...} . This logged a "false" error, which was meant to be ignored.

See $^S for details.
