---- Unsatisfied dependencies detected during ---- ---- ADAMK/DBD-SQLite-1.29.tar.gz ---- DBI [build_requires] Shall I follow them and prepend them to the queue of modules we are processing right now? [yes] ... T/TI/TIMB/DBI-1.611.tar.gz is just needed temporarily during building or testing. Do you want to install it permanently? [yes] no ... Then DBD::SQLite installs, but it doesn’t work because prerequisites are missing. That last prompt is simply not telling the truth, as DBD::SQLite also has requries in its PREREQ_PM. So either the question should come later, after the Makefile has been scanned for prerequisites, or the answer should be ignored if Makefile lists the same module.
