  • Sadly, the makefile trickery doesn't work in case-insensitive filesystems. :-(
    • like OSX? if you're using GNU make you can probably move makefile to GNUmakefile and get the same effect.

      but yeah, using both files is a hack, as is the force trickery to pass unknown commands down to the perl-generated Makefile. but the idea here is to hide perl from the process as much as possible - there is no reason why you can't use Makefile.PL for everything, it's just more complex.
