AI> The MakeMaker build hangs in the test: INSTALL_BASE.t

I had that same problem too,

AI> the only person using the CPAN shell on an Jail !

... but had no idea if it happens only in a jail.

Looking at the ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm instances in my $PREFIX/lib/perl5 I
concluded that lang/perl5.X ports use to install several of them. That managed
me to install the latest and greatest EU::MM from CPAN's .tar.gz (6,57 I think)
and the only problem I have now is 'Need the 6.42 but we have an unknown
version' warning but thiungs are just ok.

You'd better ask in -perl@ list?
