|Subject:||Module::Build fails for regular users|
Module-Build-0.20, perl 5.8.0, SunOS ppnd20-m 5.8 Generic_108528-18 sun4u sparc this is a single issue rant on an otherwise neat looking module. In INSTALL.txt, Ken anticipates that ./Build install (this step may need to be done as the superuser) And this is my experience. I don't think this is an acceptible requirement - many users, myself included, do not have root access, and cannot wait N months for IT to patch perl modules, assuming IT is willing to do so (in my case, I'm using a perl distribution that is mounted worldwide, so there is no chance IT will patch this distribution). This is a critical problem. Any module, now or in the future that uses Module::Build will be near uninstallable in corporate environments.
