Not that I use CPAN.pm much, but I think it won't even know that File::ShareDir::Install is needed until the I::C Makefile.PL has been run ... and it can't run that file because it detects a syntax error.
I'm confident that is what all that META stuff is about, and old CPAN.pm did not META, with META it isn't required to run Makefile.PL to determine a dependency on File::ShareDir::Install
All of which makes me wonder whether it's such a good idea to provide a Makefile.PL that wants to load Fie::ShareDir::Install.
Well, you know the solution, pack the extra dependencies into your distribution, like inc style like Module::Install::Bundle - Bundle distributions along with your distribution
