The 'veryclean' target does not remove backup files in second-level directories and below. For example I'm working on a new release of Sendmail::PMilter, which will have in the distribution the directories lib/ lib/Sendmail lib/Sendmail/PMilter When I run 'make veryclean' I'm left with backup files in lib/Sendmail and lib/Sendmail/PMilter (which is where I'm likely to have such files), although if I do put backup files in lib/ (it's most unlikely that I would do that of course) then they are deleted. If this is this intentional please ignore me - or better yet, please point me to the bit of the documentaion that I need to see. :)

I thought I was knowledgeable about EUMM, but this is the first time I've heard of "veryclean"! You're quite right that it's supposed to do a "realclean", then remove extra stuff: https://metacpan.org/pod/ExtUtils::MakeMaker#Distribution-Support As a workaround, would it be an acceptable outcome to just add in your Makefile.PL something like this? realclean => { FILES => '*.bak etc' },
Subject: 'veryclean' target.

Just thought I ought to mention it, I can live with it. :)
