This fails 100% of its tests on VMS because none of it compiles. "How could I have known?" you're about to ask. Here's how you could have known -- the following is with a fresh build of blead on OS X: % ./perl -Ilib -C lib/Module/Build/Platform/ Global symbol "%Config" requires explicit package name at lib/Module/Build/Platform/ line 213. BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted at lib/Module/Build/Platform/ line 495. Fix that and VMS will be down to a handful of Module::Build failures instead of dozens. You might want to incorporate something like that for everything under Module/Build/Platform into your release process.

Thank you for the report. I've patched this in blead and in the M::B trunk. I've also added a test that will catch compilation failures in the future. -- David
