OK that was a good clue, thanks. I had deleted the inner Makefile.PL
as we had an all-encompassing one in a dir above.

We have, FWIW,

.../  -- main app
.../lib, script, etc
.../Makefile.PL -- contains all requires etc for all the app & Catalyst
.../IDL-Web/  -- Catalyst app
.../IDL-Web/Makefile.PL  -- this had very old requires and not much
else (apparently!) of use so I nuked it

Seems like if I have an empty Makefile.PL in IDL-Web it's all good.
Slightly surprising but there we are.

Any comments on this? Better ways, etc?
