The changes in this branch is help build, test, install, etc. the module on systems that don't have the make utility (which is my case). The Build.PL was created based on the existing Makefile.PL file.

I added the MANIFEST and the MANIFEST.SKIP files in case you're interested on having them included in the repository.

Sounds good. I've always wanted to check this and Distzilla out. Since I know nothing about Module::Build give me a bit of time to look at this.

Why don't you have make installed? And are you suggesting that I replace MakeMaker with Module::Build?

Hi there,
Currently my development platform is Windows 7 and so far I haven't had the need to install my system.

On the other hand I'm not suggesting to replace MakeMaker, actually I've seen Perl distributions that offer the 2 installation options MakeMaker and Module::Build leaving the user the opportunity to choose based on their system needs. That's basically the reason I thought that it might be a good idea to have both options available.

Hi, somewhat on the fence here. I like the pure Perl aspects of Module::Build, but don't want to maintain 2 files (or one common module) to be used by both for things like making README.pod.

Minor note, but I don't think Module::Build is bundled with the latest versions of Perl and, with Strawberry Perl, everyone on Windows can (easily?) have make (or dmake). What Windows distro do you have?
