hi,

i've compiled perl-5.8.8 from scratch (my favorite approach) ...
installed it ... and now i'm installing the modules which my in-house
collection of code requires ... and i've run into a 'loop' between
'version' and 'Module::Build' ... each requires the other ... and
'cpan' doesn't seem to know how to work around this:

cpan > install version
[...]
version-0.64/META.yml
version-0.64/MANIFEST
Removing previously used /home/skendric/.cpan/build/version-0.64
Package came without SIGNATURE

This module requires Module::Build to install itself.

Base class package "version" is empty.
(Perhaps you need to 'use' the module which defines that package
first.)

at this point, i'm chasing my tail ... any tips on how to break out and
make progress?

Circular dependency?

Maybe you can first install a slightly older version of
Module::Build -- one that doesn't require version.pm:

http://search.cpan.org/src/KWILLIAMS....2801/Build.PL

You can get the source from the CPAN website; download the tarball
found here:

http://search.cpan.org/~kwilliams/Module-Build-0.2801/

Manually install this module.

Then install version with the CPAN shell utility.

Then reinstall the (latest) Module::Build.

It does seem quite bothersome...

Hope this helps,
Steven
