in thread What's the deal with ExtUtils::MakeMaker [build_requires]

I don't run 'follow' as my prereq policy. I have never seen this issue. Including in a test I'm running right now.

You are doing something weird somewhere in you config, that you've managed to replicate out. I have no idea what, but that is not normal behavior.

Edit: It's possible that some module you are using has done an exceptionally bad job of specifying it's requirements, and managed to confuse perl into thinking it wants a newer version of that module, despite it already having the newest version. I'm not exactly sure what type of bug would cause that, but I can see something along that line happening with the mess that is the various different ways to specify version strings in Perl.

    Yeah, may you're right and this is only related to the stuff we are using, mainly Catalyst and related modules (DBIx::Class, Moose, etc.). Or the particular way we have our set-ups. Guess I'll have to dig deeper....
