Looking at the CPAN testers results it -should- build under 5.10.0 - there
are a couple of PASS results for 1.07 there on


It's required by Data::Vistor as a dependency, but only for a specific
feature which I -don't- think we actually turn on. It'd suggest you try
forcing Data::Visitor, see if everything else installs ok, and if so
don't worry about it and we'll try and arrange a Data::Visitor release
that makes the dependency optional.
