However, 'version' pragma is non-core at 5.8 level, as evinced by: $ corelist version version was first released with perl 5.009 Hence, any package which uses it should have its Make/Buildfile prompt user to install latest version of 'version' *is* listed in the PREREQ_PM key in the M::S::PBP Makefile.PL, but, for reasons unknown, I was not prompted to install 'version' by 'make'.
