Can't build Module::Build (needed by Log::Dispatch) for RT3.4RC1

I’m trying to install RT3.4RC1 on Fedora Core 3 with Perl 3.8.5.
Log::Dispatch won’t install because it needs Module::Build, which
fails its tests miserably. The first error is an “Argument list too
long” message.

I thought I’d tracked the problem down (via archive search) to
Test::Harness, which I upgraded to 2.44. That hasn’t helped.

Any ideas what’s happening? Fix?

Thanks!

Sigh. That’s "Perl 5.8.5, of course…"

I ran into the same problem trying to build modules (via CPAN>)
for RT3.2 - the install of Log::Dispatch wanted to build Module::Build
and that blew up.

I solved this by downloading the kit for Module::Build (from
http://tinyurl.com/66nfn )
and doing a ‘traditional’ install/build outside of the CPAN> gizmo (note:
be sure to
follow the steps in the INSTALL file inside the tarfile). After that, I
fired up CPAN> again
and it was able to do the ‘install Log::Dispatch’ just fine.
