I had mentioned to Chris D. recently that we may add a few
dependencies. XML::Simple is needed by Bio::DB::EUtilities. There
are several more that are present on the wiki:
I have a feeling that not all of them are in Bundle::Bioperl yet.
At some point we should think about adding a script to the PPM
distro, similar to Makefile.PL, that checks dependencies and installs
scripts. This currently works using 'perl Makefile.PL' so there
should some way of doing this (I thought this may be present in an
old bioperl ppm package but I may be wrong.
