Subject: Makefile.PL is generated in random order after each "Build dist"
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 336b
With M::B version 0.4218, the Makefile.PL gets generated each time in a random order, which is quite annoying for those that work under git, as after each "Build dist" (and even "Build disttest"), new changes appear in `git diff`. This only happens in the latest versions of M::B. A simple sort of the keys will fix the issue. Thanks!

Module::Build::Compat is horrible. Its time in the sun has come and gone. If your distribution doesn't rely on Module::Build-specific features and is therefore capable of producing an ExtUtils::MakeMaker-compatible build, then you're better off ditching MB altogether and just using EUMM. -a toolchainer

Ether: a response that actually addresses the reported bug would have been more appropriate. Trizen: I'm not seeing the behavior you reported, also using 0.4218. Nothing in Module::Build::Compat has changed in a really long time, is it possible something else in your toolchain has changed that would affect this? The most recent change that I can see affecting this is 6 years ago in version 0.36_18, when David G. changed the version of Tie::IxHash we depend on.

Perl 5.18 introduces hash randomization, I would guess you're observing that. The patch in #102862 may fix your issue. Leon
