I needed output that would be valid input to CPAN.pm. I.e. "AUTHOR/DistName-0.00.tar.gz". Those links don't help without further processing.

Also CPANTS shows distributions that list another as a prerequisite. That's not the same thing as distributions which have Build.PL.

For example, most of my distributions use Build.PL but provide a traditional Makefile.PL as well for compatibility. (I use custom Build.PL to do helpful things when I'm authoring.)
