With Module::Build 0.2804 now requiring version.pm, there is a chicken-and-egg situation: Module::Build requires version.pm to build version.pm requires Module::Build to build Any suggestions? Paul.

That's pretty much what I've done for the moment (although I use RPM packages rather than CPAN installs). It's not exactly a long-term plan though, particularly from the point of view of taking a repository of existing RPM/deb/whatever packages and rebuilding them for a new distribution. Paul.

Hi, I've just run into this problem too. The proposed work-around is not very elegant. Do you have any plans to resolve this issue? Cheers, Andy

Yes, it should have been resolved a few days ago by a new release (several iterations, actually) of version.pm that has a regular Makefile.PL that doesn't depend on Module::Build at all. There were no changes necessary to M::B. -Ken
