And it seems this is still true:


make test
MakeMaker checks for the existence of a file named test.pl in the
current directory and if it exists it execute the script with the
proper set of perl -I options.
MakeMaker also checks for any files matching glob("t/*.t"). It will
execute all matching files in alphabetical order via the Test::Harness
module with the -I switches set correctly.
