NB: This has been cross-posted to my journal

As I do some work to my older modules, I'm converting their installation procedures to Module::Build (mentioned here).

Whilst updating CGI::Application::PhotoGallery, I ran in to a little bug (detailed by Phred). The desired behavior is to have the default templates install in @INC so i can simply add @INC to the include paths and they'll be used as a fall-back mechanism. The way I achieved that with ExtUtils::MakeMaker was to put them directly in the /lib/ directory in the distro and EU::MM will happily copy them over on make install.

With Module::Build, i can take them out of the lib directory and put them in /etc/ and use the pm_files option to make sure they're copied over:

pm_files => { 'etc/photos_index.tmpl' => 'lib/CGI/Application/PhotoGallery/phot +os_index.tmpl', 'etc/photos_single.tmpl' => 'lib/CGI/Application/PhotoGallery/phot +os_single.tmpl', # wish i could just do the templates... 'lib/CGI/Application/PhotoGallery.pm' => 'lib/CGI/Applicati +on/PhotoGallery.pm', 'lib/CGI/Application/PhotoGallery/GD.pm' => 'lib/CGI/Applicati +on/PhotoGallery/GD.pm', 'lib/CGI/Application/PhotoGallery/Magick.pm' => 'lib/CGI/Applicati +on/PhotoGallery/Magick.pm' }

This is fine and dandy, except that I'm auto-generating a Makefile.PL and Module::Build::Compat has no way to handle that construct.

So, is there a better way to handle this scenario, or should i revert to stuffing my templates in the /lib/ directory?

Update: Minor style updates.
