How else will you be doing the dependency resolution? If your system 
just installs all dependencies itself beforehand, then dependency 
resolution won't be invoked in Build.PL :)

Otherwise, don't run Build.PL at all (why do you need to?), or have your 
system answer default to all questions:

echo | perl Build.PL
