As I mentioned in the other thread, Makefile.PL isn't in CVS, but it 
will be generated and included in distributions (ie. in .tar.gz file 
that you download from the website or via CPAN).

As a CVS user you can generate one for yourself by:
perl Build.PL
./Build manifest
./Build distmeta

You should now have Makefile.PL on which you can do the usual stuff:
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install
