If you add the following lines to your call to WriteMakefile() it makes it easier for packaging software like cpan2rpm to get things right: $] < 5.005 ? () : ( AUTHOR => 'Graham Barr <gbarr@pobox.com>', ABSTRACT_FROM => "IO.pm", ), so your call will look like this: WriteMakefile( VERSION_FROM => "IO.pm", NAME => "IO", OBJECT => '$(O_FILES)', DEFINE => $define, $] < 5.005 ? () : ( AUTHOR => 'Graham Barr <gbarr@pobox.com>', ABSTRACT_FROM => "IO.pm", ), 'dist' => {COMPRESS => 'gzip -9f', SUFFIX => 'gz', DIST_DEFAULT => 'tardist', }, 'clean' => {FILES => join(" ", map { "$_ */$_ */*/$_" } qw(*% *.html *.b[ac]k *.old *.orig)) }, 'macro' => { INSTALLDIRS => 'perl' }, );

The IO dist on CPAN is considered dead. It is no longer needed if you have perl 5.6.0 or later as the IO modules come with perl. Graham.
