in thread OT Sick of make, is there a replacement?

you will first need make to install Module::Build

No, you don't actually need make to install Module::Build.
From its README:
To install "Module::Build", and any other module that uses "Module::Build" for its installation process, do the following: perl Build.PL # 'Build.PL' script creates the 'Build' script ./Build # Need ./ to ensure we're using this "Build" scrip +t ./Build test # and not another one that happens to be in the PA +TH ./Build install
Module::Build does ship with a Makefile.PL, thus making it possible to install using EU::MM and a make utility.
But you're not forced to install it that way.

    That's when you want to install things.

    If you want to use Module::Build you will have to install it first when it is no longer in core and quite likely that install process will use make.
