These warnings do not stem from this module, but stem from other perl modules
(Probably LWP::*).

The module is being used by other module's Makefile.PL, which try to download
other modules at module build-time, when it finds some requirements are not met.
For these modules, you can't build their Makefile from their Makefile.PL's if
ExtUtils::AutoInstall is not present.
