ExtUtils::MakeMaker has a handy feature: PREREQ_FATAL => 1 which makes the "perl Makefile.PL" abort if the dependencies are not satisfied. This prevents glitches like someone trying to still run the testsuite even when some required module isn't available. It would be cool if Module::Install could support this.
Bug #22809 for Module-Install: Add support for EUMM style PREREQ_FATAL
This queue is for tickets about the Module-Install CPAN distribution.
