I think Stas and I both were forgetting #1 unless I just don't recall it.

Could we not distrubute a dummy Makefile that's gets overwritten by Makefile.PL
and this dummy makefile does nothing other then have dependency information for CPAN?

Assuming, the above is a bad idea, [I don't like it]....

Do not more users install libapreq (v2 at least) manually?

2 is inconvient for CPAN, but failsafe -- at least when it does fail, you'll get a real error.
You get some rather interesting failures if say wasn't installed.

So if I'm force to choose, I vote #2.


I still owe Makefile.PL work and INSTALL static build updating...
If I just had time...

     What doesn't kill us can only make us stronger.
                 Nothing is impossible.
