|Traditionally, Perl uses the same toolchain that it was built with for building its modules.
Is it just a tradition or is it more? Is it possible to use different make programs even for different Perl modules?
I'm not sure why you would want to change that, because that toolchain is proven to work well.
I am thinking of:
Most likely, changing the make utility involves patching ExtUtils::MakeMaker to properly recognize the new type of make tool and produce the appropriate output.
- Difficult to find good documentation on Dmake
- GNU Make is more known than Dmake. There is a bigger user community.
- GNU Make has a bigger “maintenance” group, with more frequent releases.
Yes, I know. And ExtUtils::MakeMaker is also "doomed" by it's maintainer!
