You were pointing out the YAML issue? I think I'm less concerned with 
that (solution: install YAML) and much more concerned with why it can't 
reload ModuleBuildBioperl (claiming it isn't in @INC). The module in 
question is in the same dir as the Build script, so it should be found 

The only thing I can think of is that CPAN doesn't manage to chdir to 
the directory. Hopefully I'll be able to reproduce this and then I can 
investigate further.
