Module::Install has acquired the bad habit of loading CPAN.pm and
trying to download all kind of stuff. Since 0.86 that behaviour can
again be turned off by using
perl Makefiel.PL --skipdeps

Therefore having "--skipdeps" set by default in dh_auto_configure
would be nice, either by just adding it like this:


- --- a/dh_auto_configure  2009-05-10 19:08:29.000000000 +0200
+++ b/dh_auto_configure   2009-05-11 17:40:46.000000000 +0200
@@ -91,7 +91,7 @@
        # If set to a true value then MakeMaker's prompt function will
        # # always return the default without waiting for user input.
        $ENV{PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT}=1;
- -       doit("perl", "Makefile.PL", "INSTALLDIRS=vendor",
"create_packlist=0", @{$dh{U_PARAMS}});
+       doit("perl", "Makefile.PL", "INSTALLDIRS=vendor",
"create_packlist=0", "--skipdeps", @{$dh{U_PARAMS}});
 }
 elsif (-e "Build.PL") {
        $ENV{PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT}=1; # Module::Build can also use this.


or only if inc/Module/Install.pm is present.

(The traditional (i.e. EUMM) Makefile.PLs don't seem to care.)

Cheers,
gregor
