Module::Build port

[ #10056 ]
Today's mission, and I *have* chosen to accept it, is to port Module::Build for us Ruby types. Ruby is sadly lacking in a consistent build/test/install mechanism. Myself and two other CORE members are going to get started on it today

We were originally going to work on ExtUtils::MakeMaker, but autarch's comments led me to Module::Build and I think it's the better way to go. So, thanks autarch!

Wish us luck!

  • I think this will be much easier. M::B is not done yet, but even when it is, it'll be a fraction of the size of MakeMaker, since there's no need to include every weird edge case in the core when it's easy to customize the installation behavior.
