[Libguestfs] [PATCH] perl: Switch to using Module::Build.



Switch from 'ExtUtils::MakeMaker' to 'Module::Build'.

There's not really a huge difference here.  The interfacing gymnastics
that we have to do to make Makefile.am and Module::Build talk to each
other is probably a little bit simpler.

I compared the output of 'make install' before and after, and there's
not much difference.  'perllocal.pod' is not installed (see recent bug
report), and 'bindtests.pl' is also not installed.  However the empty
file 'Guestfs.bs' is now copied in, but in Fedora we were already
removing any '*.bs' files.

This is good reading (make sure to read the comments too):

Rich.
