  • CPAN testing is an automated process. It would appear to me that this system ought to be smart enough to see that tests fail because of prerequisites that are missing, and simply refuse to send a report. And it looks like it's not, because reports are being sent.

    Oh, I have plenty of more gripes on the module installation tools, for example in their failing to notice that a required (non-perl) library is missing. Now, you only find out because of failing tests. Surely it must be possible to have the C compiler or linker tell the installer that it is missing files?
