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
