I was going to get round to it eventually.

Build.PL supports these things, making use of Devel::Cover et al.:

./Build help testcover
./Build help testpod
./Build help testpodcoverage

I started running

./Build testcover

and its amazingly slow. So if you run it and capture the output 
somewhere that might be useful.
