in thread What do I use to release a module to CPAN for the first time?

Pretty much all build tools are wrappers around ExtUtils::MakeMaker, Module::Build, or Module::Build::Tiny. There's nothing to stop you just using one of those modules directly with no wrappers, but it might be a bit more manual work — it's easier to screw things up.
