Of version.pm (which comes with both Perl and XS flavors, now with extra 
cheesy goodness!!!).  I wonder whether the freebsd port maintainer chose 
to use the vpp.pm (pure Perl) variant as to eliminate the dependency on 
a C-compiler.  I don't see any tests on Freebsd-6.1 on cpantesters (only 
  4.8 and 5.4).

Actually, I suspect it works now because you already ran it once. 
Module::Install is surprisingly sensitive to initial conditions and 
sometimes just retrying will fix things...
