Thanks demerphq and PodMaster; this is at least getting me close. There is some magic here. My directory structure looks like this:
gmod/ src/ component1/ component2/ component3/
All I had to do was put a simple Makefile.PL in the src/ directory and when the main Makefile.PL was executed in the gmod/ directory, it saw the one in src/, which in turn saw the ones in component directories.

This probably would have worked flawlessly if the items in the component directories were only Perl modules, but they are more complicated than that, and have in their Makefile.PLs custom overrides to the install target (so that items can be installed under /usr/local/apache, for instance). I may be able to get around that by overriding the install target in the main Makefile.PL, but that is unattractive for at least one reason: it makes the main Makefile.PL more fragile (if the author of component1 changes his Makefile.PL and doesn't tell me, it won't work as expected).

Thanks again,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
