A couple of notes about "Makefile.PL vs Build.PL" or "ExtUtils::MakeMaker vs
Module::Build"

1. If a perl distro includes both the Build.PL and the Makefile.PL file, there
   are good chances that the Makefile.PL has been generated from the Build.PL
   file.  In these cases is better to package the module using Build.PL (BR: 
   perl(Module::Build).  Note: in the past the generated Makefile.PL not always
   installed correctly. 

2. In the past the documentation of Module::Build stated that Module::Build
   *would* replace ExtUtils::MakeMaker.  This now has been corrected (see the
   Module::Build changelog) and both installation methods will be supported.
   
3. In the past the Michael G Schwern's presentation "MakeMaker Is DOOMED! or
   MakeMaker is dead! Long live Module::Build!" also caused some confusion.   
   (http://schwern.org/~schwern/talks/MakeMaker_Is_DOOMED/slides/slide001.html)
   Michael Schwern was at the time the perl test guy and the maintainer of   
   ExtUtils::MakeMaker.

4. Module::Build is a perl core module since perl 5.9.4. Perl 5.10 will
   supported Makefile.PL and Build.PL natively.  Right now Module::Build must
   be installed from CPAN or from a package repository.  Module::Build is
   rather important as it doesn't require external utilities such as make (and
   its flavours) which is a must if you must support lot of platforms (UNIX,
   VMS, Win32, ...)
