I can see that. On the other hand, CPAN.pm doesn't "make clean" so the
blib sticks around. One tiny object file wouldn't really bug me and it
would be cleaned up when the cache is cleaned. But I guess it's better
to clean up if one can. (Assuming -o is portable across most all
compilers.)
A) the test only sees whether you can compile a file (i.e. create an
object file);

B) EU::MM notices this object file and tries to link it in with the
other object files (discovered in a sidebar with Eric Wilhelm);

hence

C) The Makefile.PL that now ships with version.pm deletes the test
object file prior to writing the Makefile:

map { unlink $_ if -f $_ } ('test.c','test.o');
