Module::Build users -- please use the "traditional" create_makefile_pl option
I've always wondered why Module::Build simply doesn't add PREFIX support. It seems to me that a lot of the old Perl bits (like Makemaker and CPAN.pm) get complete, pure Perl rewrites that end up with less features and are some how harder to modify. The PREFIX complaint is certainly not new.
I'm curious, for the Module::Build people out there, why anyone is using it? Are you using it because it's pure Perl, because it's the new thing, or is there some feature in it that you need and Makemaker doesn't already have?
