Makefile is old and it is fixed only when you manually run a Makefile.PL

Are you saying that if you go into (say) cpan/Archive-Extract and run, from the command line:

../../miniperl -I../../lib Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=perl INSTALLMAN1DIR=none INSTALLMAN3DIR=none PERL_CORE=1 LIBPERL_A=libperl.a

then the generated Makefile is fine ... but when the build process runs the exact same command, the generated Makefile is older than the Makefile.PL ?

That would be very weird. I don't know what the next step would be ... but I would think you'd have to start by looking for a difference in the environment settings for the 2 situations.
