Subject: installation proceeds even when dependency failed to install
If something a module depends upon fails to install - the requested module should stop trying to install. eg: do this on a fresh RedHat ES3 kit:- perl -MCPAN -e "install 'Mail::SPF::Query'" and answer "yes" when asked to do the network tests for the "Net::DNS" dependency - which causes a failure as of today.
