skazat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

In the docs for Module::Install, it mentions, "recommends" line in the Makefile.PL file, but then gives no documentation for it. Does this line actually do anything? Is Module::Install the current favorite thingy to use to install multiple Perl Modules (Ala Bundle), or, should I be using something else?

I'm currently attempting to package a distribution of my own program, which requires a few CPAN perl modules and Module::Install looks like a good candidate to make that happen. Am I barking up the wrong tree?
