    % sudo make test

    Here I am a little confused, since IMHO make test should be done (and suceed) as non root user.

    print "Just another active CPAN-TESTER";
    • This is true. However, please refer to the paragraph somewhere above that line:

      If any dependent modules were selected in the previous step, then you will have to run make test as root, so it can fetch and install these modules automatically before testing itself.

      Since the error could not occur without attempting to install such modules, I had to use sudo to make the story consistent.

      I agree that this is somewhat confusing, though; suggestions welcome.
