The problem with META.yml is that it is not implemented on CPAN outside
of the noindex field.  What I think that means is that the top-level 
makefile must either be derived from Module::Build or ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
otherwise PAUSE will not understand our prereqs and provided modules.

Our current Makefile.PL is just a thin wrapper around the ./configure script.
I don't see how to make it work with the PAUSE indexer without rewriting

Nope-  I confess my total ignorance.

You shouldn't need to run ./configure *in addition* to running 
perl Makefile.PL.  The Makefile.PL script execs it automatically,
and ./configure will execute the glue/perl/Makefile.PL script at
some point down the road.  If you'd like to change that behavior, 
please post a patch before committing it so I can look it over.
