Greetings, morgon.

While I think marto has a good suggestion. I like choices (and offering them). I recently had to install a Module for a project I'm working on. It too had external resources that it thought I should/needed to install. It was Lingua-JA-Romanize-Japanese. The build, install session went as follows

# perl ./Makefile.PL Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Writing Makefile for Lingua::JA::Romanize::Japanese Writing MYMETA.yml and MYMETA.json
and make went in a way I really prefer
# make /usr/local/bin/perl5.12.5 -Ilib -MLingua::JA::Romanize::DictJA -e 'Lin +gua::JA::Romanize::DictJA->update();' Updater: Lingua::JA::Romanize::DictJA (0.23) Path: lib/Lingua/JA/Romanize/Japanese.bdb Loading module: Loading module: LWP::UserAgent Loading module: IO::Zlib Loading module: External dictionaries: Do you wish to download these files? [y]
Choosing n didn't cause a FAIL. As it (the module) still worked w/o those dictionaries. But I just felt this was similar enough to your situation, that it's source might provide some information you might find useful in your current quest.

UPDATE: A point that might have been missed here; is that this method allows the person installing your module satisfy the dependencies using a different method that maybe their "dist" (OS) can satisfy "natively".

Yes. What say about me, is true.
