as discussed in http://bugs.debian.org/508876 , the ExtUtils::Miniperl
module hasn't been listed in Module::Corelist for some time although
it still gets installed by the build process.
% corelist -a ExtUtils::Miniperl
ExtUtils::Miniperl was first released with perl 5.00504
I see it's a generated file. Presumably Porting/corelist.pl has been
run in a clean tree since 5.9.5 so Miniperl.pm is missing.
This is clearly a bug somewhere, but what's the right fix?
Should ExtUtils::Miniperl be listed at all?
Should it be installed at all?
FWIW, EU::Miniperl was removed from the CPAN ExtUtils::MakeMaker
distribution in 2002 because it wasn't considered useful to anybody
outside the core.
