Please use Super Search, it is really helpful. Read Module::Build article on perl.com, MakeMaker is doomed for comments by merlyn on Module::Build, then check Collecting MakeMaker recipes for a link provided by IlyaM to an article in Matts's journal about living without h2xs.
But we really need a tool to do that, so I can tell beginners "this is how to make a module, really quickly".
We sorta have one in the current magical "h2xs -XAn mod::ule::name" phrase that I teach people. But if that's flawed, let's fix that. Not just sidestep it.
