Yes, I can - sorry for ignoring it so far.

For pkgsrc users one package will be lost (textproc/p5-PDF-API2-Simple)
and all other packages will build faster. I don't know about any further
impact for users.

The additional change for pkgsrc developers is, that
PERL5_MODULE_TYPE=Module::Install is depreciated and should not be used
any more.

Looks good, but I didn't test it as well :(
Probably you should put around the warning something like this
to allow those who know to use M::I - and they should know that they
have to contact pkgsrc-p5-people@
