MakeMaker reporting "not Found" Can't Post

Does anyone know what method MakeMaker uses to determine whether a module is installed or not? I have written my own module and am using MakeMaker to build the install but when I type:

perl Makefile.PL

....I get a module "not found" message on a module that is definitely installed and working.

Module not found is principally because it's not in the normal path of Perl modules. If you want to specify a different path while building a module that requires a different one, you can use the environment variable, PERL5LIB.

Other than that, if you want to determine if a module is installed or not, you can read the ExtUtils::MakeMaker man page. You'll want to look for, PREREQ_PM.

Oh, and as far as "the method", it uses? No, sorry. I don't know.
