The warnings just tell you what it is currently missing (and if selected will install when you run make).

So, should I run 'make install'  -  I haven't run this yet because in an earlier reply you suggested that it might not be a good idea.

Ok... With Module::Install, there are typically several stages to building any Perl module or distribution.  It goes like this:

make:  Installs dependencies, builds Perl XS libraries, etc

make test:  Runs make if necessary, then runs test suites.

make install:  Runs make test, then copies man files, perl Modules, etc to proper directories.

The only one that is really required is:


I have changed the docs to recommend make test instead of make install.
