  • In older versions of Module::Build, the API using Module::Build->new_from_context and the commandline invocation of perl Build.PL produced different Build files. The former mangled @INC differently than the latter, and sometimes left out additions from after use Module::Build.

    I'm having a bit of trouble finding the ticket in the Module::Build [cpan.org] queue, but it's been resolved some time ago. Of course, the user may not have upgraded yet :(

    Also, an unfortunately longstanding, unresolved issue [cpan.org] is that using the Module::Build API, one can't get to the errors/output reported during the build stages, so the test report doesn't show you enough diagnostics to remedy the problem.

    Hopefully this sheds some light on the situation.
