Hi M::B devs,

I'm in the unlucky position where a user of my Mail::SPF distro is expe- 
riencing a "Couldn't run Build.PL: Argument list too long" error with M::B 
0.2805 on RHEL 4.4 (see the enclosed message) and I cannot help debugging 
it myself because I neither have RHEL nor understand M::B well enough to 
analyze the problem.

What should I or my user do?

TIA,
Julian.

We're using Scientific Linux 4.4 (equiv RHEL 4.4), a new install.
I just installed SpamAssassin, Razor and then IO::Zlib and
Mail::SPF::Query from CPAN (required by S/A), then tried
"Mail::SPF" as per your message. I got 2.002.

[Mail-SPF-2.002]# perl Makefile.PL
This module requires Module::Build to install itself.
   Install Module::Build now from CPAN? [y]

this generates a ton of errors. I'm not competent enough writing
CPAN modules to easily debug this.

e.g.
Couldn't run Build.PL: Argument list too long at
/root/.cpan/build/Module-Build-0.2805/blib/lib/Module/Build/Compat.pm
line 200.
