in reply to CPAN forces my machine to install Make - i am lost

How many threads are you going to start about this one module installation? Why would I want to read a PDF file elsewhere? Why don't you try to install the dependencies properly, as described in their documentation? Please re read your previous posts on this topic, including how to test my perl-prerequesites on a Linux-box - with command line-approach, /WWW::Mechanize::Firefox how to install on opensuse 12.1 and many others.

Cross post at OpenSuse forums.

Update: Your title is once again misleading. Cpan isn't forcing you to install make.
