As you have surely already noticed a new framework for dealing with
packages providing perl5 module(s) had been introduced in pkgsrc.

A quick note about it had been added to section '5.4 Perl5 modules' of
pkgsrc/Packages.txt (revision 1.268).

In short: no more do-configure target in such a package Makefile.

We believe this provide more flexibility for future extensions.

Mostly all revelant packages had been now converted to this framework.

Thanks to those who have already picked up on it.
And thanks to Johnny Lam for coming up with a cleaner scheme than mine.

Cheers, Stoned.
