  • Module::Build includes a module for generating Makefile.PL files in various modes. One of them, the "passthrough" mode, creates a Makefile.PL that will attempt to download Module::Build and install it before calling the Build.PL. Obviously, it doesn't expect Module::Build to already be installed for this to happen.

    I don't know how many CPAN authors use this mode, but I always use this or the "parallel Makefile.PL using EU::MM" versions on my cpan uploads, and I've gotten very few bug reports about it.
