The best place for a more technical discussion about
a change to PDL internals would be the pdl-porters
mailing list---starting with what ExtUtils::Depends support
means and why PDL doesn't...

I am looking to simplify (delete code from) Gimp-Perl. The other dependencies it has are GNOME-related and support ExtUtils::Depends and its resulting , and the resulting Makefile.PL is extremely simple EXCEPT for the PDL part; the important bits support Gtk2 and Glib look like this:

my $pkg = new ExtUtils::Depends Gimp, Gtk2;

It would be amazing to be able to just support PDL by adding ", PDL" to the previous initialisation line. It would be a one-liner addition to the build for PDL. Please let me know if you would like this, and I will make a git-format patch.
