In ONTO-PERL-1.42/Makefile.PL PREREQ_FATAL=>1 is specified. Using PREREQ_FATAL is generally a bad idea, because it prevents installers like to automatically install all required dependencies. The ExtUtils::MakeMaker documentation says about this parameter: It is extremely rare to have to use "PREREQ_FATAL". Its use by module authors is strongly discouraged and should never be used lightly. Best is to remove this flag completely.
