  • You need to have a Makefile.PL, even if it's (correctly) auto-generated.

    Because at the moment, if you install a fresh version of Perl 5.8.8, and then try to install your module, it will fail. Because Module::Build has a configure-time dependency (a dependency needed just to run Build.PL) which CPAN clients are not currently capable of handling.

    Go try it.

    Until this situation is fixed, and your module is actually installable on the most common stock production Perl versions, you should keep producing Makefile.PLs.
