Subject: typoes in dist.ini required fields doesn't produce a meaningful error
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 208b
I had a dist.ini file with a typo. licence = Perl_5 ^--- Here. Instead of being told "Hey, you are missing a required field!", the only error message delivered was "Unable to find main_module in dist"

The problem is that license isn't supposed to be required, but you can't get the main_module during BUILD. I think you need to move the guessing part of _initialize_license into a lazy builder.
This problem no longer exists. -- rjbs
