My proposal to add a 'lib_requires' keyword to the META file - with
identical semantics as Devel::CheckLib did not make at this round of
META spec changes. Now I think that maybe a better strategy would be
to start with adding this to the documentation. I am sure many
packages already do that - but I have encountered others that don't.
What I have in mind is a standard POD section that would be generated
by all the module scaffolding generators (like Module::Starter) and
which would contain all the information needed to install the external
lib in common environments. After this becomes a common thing we would
be able to make more informed decisions about including it into the
META file.
