I'm sure you'd still need compiler tools to do compilation. I wasn't 
sure what to say about bioperl-ext in the docs, so I didn't change 
anything. bioperl-ext isn't my concern (see the thread where I was 
deciding which packages needed a unified release), so I'll not be trying 
to change it over to Build.PL
