Hello Thomas,

shouldn't we have an agreement on what would be the solution to this?

a) adding the perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker package to Buildroot
b) adding a dependency check as saiberion did

I personally don't like the option b), because I like to be able to use
Buildroot having the minimum packages installed. And, if we keep doing this, we
could end with a loooong list of dependencies to use Buildroot. I think it's
better to add the perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker instead.

Maybe Francois Perrad has something to say about this since he seems to be the
perl maintaner in Buildroot.
