./Build install INSTALL_BASE=/foobar is a) incorrect b) an easy mistake to make c) silently ignored It would be great if a warning was given here, because otherwise subtle configuration mistakes such as this are hard to find and debug. It would have been great to get ./Build install INSTALL_BASE=/foobar Warning: INSTALL_BASE not recognised (did you mean install_base?) or somesuch, instead of it just writing into the wrong directory. Will supply patch if required. -- Paul Evans

Sounds like a good idea to me. Note: Module::Build uses American English spelling.
