Okay, that works for me.

Yeah, that's due to the way it is implemented. I have been pushing away
from using Bio::Root::Build, though, as it has some very specific hacks for
dealing with the original BioPerl installation process (same for
Bio::Root::Test re: tests) when we switched from MakeMaker to
Module::Build. They may be deprecated if there isn't a broad need for
