When ExtUtils::MakeMaker is your authoring tool, you want to hook into it to perform any authoring task, which this would be one. Not necessarily related to make dist, but in the same vein. Personally, I prefer real authoring tools but for people who really like Makefile this is fine.

    Isn't it a scaffolding tool, providing me with the initial base dirs and files for a dist?

    Can I run it to change an already existing distribution?

    As I understood the OP he wants to automatically update README.pod with content from Module.pod (at least that's what I want to do)

      No, Module::Starter is a scaffolding tool. ExtUtils::MakeMaker is an install and authoring tool. Generating files in the source tree or the distribution build is one function of authoring tools.
