I think I see where you're coming from, btw - doing it that way means that PPM keeps track of everything that's installed.

Yep. My rationalization for suggesting PPM::Make is that it a basic part of the module acquisition process ( Download -> Build -> Install ). I guess my thinking lumped build and install together, while you were focusing just on the build portion of the process. I definitely see your point.

Your node is certainly a welcome update. I recall the frustration I went through trying to get some modules compiled and installed while struggling under a ludicrous deadline. A resource like this would have been invaluable. I hope my above response was not taken as an attempt to denigrate your contribution.

Maybe when I get out from under my latest ludicrous deadline, I'll get around to writing a review of PPM:Make or a tutorial on building PPMs. Anyone know where I can purchase a metric ton of tuits?
