Summary0000225: Perl 5.8.8: Cannot install Module::Build
DescriptionTrying to install Module::Build fails with

# running Build.PL
Checking whether your kit is complete...
Looks good

Checking prerequisites...
Invalid prerequisite condition '0' for ExtUtils::Install at lib/Module/Build/Bas line 1234.
Couldn't run Build.PL: at lib/Module/Build/ line 200, <DATA> line 547.

I've installed ExtUtils::Install though.

This is a major problem since most modern Perl add-ons require Module::Build for installation.
TagsNo tags attached.

Please try with Perl 5.10.0 - released today.

The good news is that many modules that I need are already included now. The bad news is that calling any Perl script fails with something like this:

E:/txt2html-2.50>perldoc perlmodinstall
Feature bundle "5.0.0" is not supported by Perl 5.10.0 at e:/perl5/lib/5.10.0/Pod/ line 3

D:\txt2html-2.50]perl d:\perl5\bin\perldoc perlmodinstall

works for me.

You don't have a stray PERLLIB_PREFIX interfering with things?

No. I also checked for duplicates of executables and DLLs. Nothing of that sort. Could there be something missing from the archive?

Well my test on d: was done using the distribution zip...

You do have a /bin/sh.exe ?

Yes, it's the one from the Perl 5.8.8 distribution. I ran unzip -t on the 5.10.0 distribution zip - no errors.
