in thread How to create installable modules ?

My recollection is that the first module that I tried to install that needed Module::Build actually installed it as a prereq. And even then you can write a Makefile.PL that is just a wrapper around Build.PL for those that can't or won't be able to use the new build stuff. Is this inaccurate?

Isn't this person that we are trying to help build a module distribution not an established module author anyway?

    You can't automatically install it as a prerequisite unless you know how to install it. It's a bit of a Catch-22: you can't process a Build.PL until you have Module::Build, and you can't install Module::Build (for the first time, at least) with a Build.PL. :)
