Subject: local installation docs and config dialogue lack Module::Build specifics
Re: http://search.cpan.org/dist/CPAN/lib/CPAN.pm#FAQ is it possible that the CPAN::FirstTime dialog process be a little more Module::Build aware? The makepl_arg speaks as if there is only Makefile.PL. The docs are vague about how to get this parm to work with both, they only say: then (oh joy) the equivalent command for Module::Build but that is not going to help a user of CPAN.pm get things set up.
Resolved with commit 32da4a9bc18df233464fc8bc55e047480069fe61 in September 2007. Overhauled again for the next release. Thanks!
