in reply to Can ExtUtils::MakeMaker recommend to install optional modules?

No.

If you're using any of cpan/cpanp/cpanm... they will notice what MakeMaker says, and attempt to install the prerequisites

You can use ExtUtils::AutoInstall - Automatic install of dependencies via CPAN

or Module::AutoInstall - Automatic install of dependencies via CPAN

    yes! http://grokbase.com/t/perl.org/module-authors/2009/10/how-can-i-tell-makemaker-to-insert-recommended-modules-into-meta-yml/16vuqyqk4yiugwsm43ttanhirbry

      yes!...

      That has nothing to do with the question asked. META is generated from PREREQ_PM. MakeMaker doesn't download modules, cpan does.
