Those are both developer releases.
IIRC there's something unresolved that isn't yet in a CPAN release.

Even 1.50 is still failing on blead
I was hoping that that could be fixed and then all the ExtUtils tree be
integrated as one.

Not going to happen because it relies on major upgrades that remove some parts

Not going to happen; it's too major.

I don't see it as the end of the world if a stable release is a bit stable in
its bundling of dual life modules.
