Subject: Missing dependency on ExtUtils::CBuilder
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 658b
Data::Bind uses Module::Build. When installing it with the CPAN shell, the shell first pulls down Module::Build and installs that, then tries to build Data::Bind. However Data::Bind contains XS code which requires ExtUtils::CBuilder to be installed. The build fails because that module hasn't been installed by the CPAN shell. At first I thought this was a bug in Module::Build and reported it as #21515. However, according to the response in that bug report, the requirement is actually on Data::Bind to have build_requires 'ExtUtils::CBuilder'. Please can you add this dependency so that installing Data::Bind from the CPAN shell will work correctly.
