Adding to ExtUtils::MakeMaker from within a module
Message ID:
How would one write an addition to MakeMaker such that, when use'd,
augments some of the output routines without taking over the MY::*
namespace? I'm working on some stuff for my Perl-RPM package to add rpm and
srpm targets. I don't want to monopolize the MY namespace, since I want
people to be able to use this in their existing (as well as future)
Makefile.PL files.
