Very few succeed at improving Makefile.PL, and those that do don't ask questions like this

Why would one NOT want to improve their Makefile.PL ... That would be utterly ignorant!

Now if you meant improve MakeMaker et al ... I agree!

Upgrade ExtUtils::Liblist = 6.63_02 with Perl 5.16

It has always accepted those

It has, The following log bits would beg to differ ...
Shared build ...

Potential libraries are '-L/usr/local/lib -lMyLib -liconv': '-lMyLib' found at /usr/local/lib/libMyLib.so '-liconv' found at /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.7

Shared build, fully qualified filename, using -l ...

    Why would one NOT want to improve their Makefile.PL ... That would be utterly ignorant!

    Well, over the last decade i've seen hundreds try to improve their Makefile.PL, all they do is break INC=/LIBS=/postamble, and require my manual intervention beyond specifying INC/LIBS

    Sure things have gotten lots better since the advent strawberryperl came along, but its hard job , there are way too many platform/compiler combinations, bugs are easy to make

    Take a look inside Alien::, inside Alien::SDL, Alien::wxWidgets, XML::LibXML, and check the bug cue -- reinventing sh configure is hard work, everyone does it differently, there is a lot to be said for KISS

    Nope, read Re^5: h2xs on Windows, it has always accepted them, before :nosearch liblist would leave them alone, but since :nosearch it doesn't leave them alone unless you use :nosearch

      Well, over the last decade i've seen hundreds try to improve their Makefile.PL, all they do is break INC=/LIBS=/postamble, and require my manual intervention beyond specifying INC/LIBS

      Sounds like a personal problem ...

      there are way too many platform/compiler combinations, bugs are easy to make

      Agreed, And that is exactly why a Dumb MakeMaker is a Smart MakeMaker!

      Take a look inside Alien::, inside Alien::SDL, Alien::wxWidgets, XML::LibXML, and check the bug cue -- reinventing sh configure is hard work

      Sorry, But I could really care less about others workload, I have my own to worry about.

      there is a lot to be said for KISS

      Love their music ... However, Keeping It Stupid Simple is my point, it's not, it's trying to be smart and failing!

      Nope, read Re^5: h2xs on Windows, it has always accepted them, before :nosearch liblist would leave them alone, but since :nosearch it doesn't leave them alone unless you use :nosearch

      The code in Kid.pm::_unix_os2_ext says you are wrong ...
      I'm not on Windows so I could care less how it functions on Windows.

      -Enjoy

        ... Agreed, And that is exactly why a Dumb MakeMaker is a Smart MakeMaker! ... so I could care less ...

        me too
