Attempting to "perl Makefile.PL" on a virgin Solaris system gives: Argument "6.30_01" isn't numeric in subroutine entry at Makefile.PL line 7. ExtUtils::MakeMaker version 6.31 required--this is only version 6.30_01 at Makefile.PL line 7. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Makefile.PL line 7.

That's just telling you that EU::MM is too old on that system. The "isn't numeric" warning is actually coming from EU::MM -- which must have shipped with a development release of EU::MM. Looking at 'corelist', 6.30_01 was in Perl v5.9.3. It was not shipped with any stable release of Perl, so if it's on a "virgin" system, that's Sun's fault. I'm closing this ticket, as I don't think there's anything CPAN::Reporter can do to "fix" the issue.
