If I am going to use ExtUtils::Command::MM to back my makefile, I either need: A compelling argument for why a makefile backed by Module::Build is not good enough.

Hmm, so you're writing your own Makefile (no .PL)? That is the worst of all solutions :) --Module::Build::Compat (see Module::Build users -- please use the "traditional" create_makefile_pl option) ++Module::Install

A solution that does not require me to hardcode Find::Bin + use lib in file after file. Eliya has proposed one solution but there are still some outstanding portability questions

Why is that a painful/unpleasant/unavoidable solution? You only have to do it once. You don't even have to do it manually :) You can make it part of your template or automate it

There is even use inc 'Plagger'; which you can use outside of Module::Install
