Subject: "notest" installs modules even if their required dependencies did not install
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 433b
Steps to reproduce: 1) Have a fresh Perl install. This works best on Perl 5.8.8 (since nearly all dependencies fail, given the too-old ExtUtils::MakeMaker). However, it happens on all Perl versions if there is a dependency failure in the chain. 2) Remove your compiler from your system. 3) notest install Math::Random::Secure You will see that Math::Random::Secure gets installed even though its dependencies fail to install.
