    I realised one thing:

    In a complex module with prerequisites, you can't do away with "make" unless you can convince all the other developers to do away with make too.

    So the advantage seems to be as autarch said - easy to alter build processes, not necessarily doing away with make.

    (one thing I'd like to be able to do is stick XS files in lib/path/to/module, rather than in the root directory, but that seems impossible with ExtUtils::MakeMaker, unless I'm doing a Homer).
