Don't believe everything you read on the Internet!
See Module::Build::fix_shebang_line().

He probably didn't tell M::B where to find the scripts.  Unlike MakeMaker it
doesn't have a default (which, to me, is the real step backwards).

               An optional parameter specifying a set of files that should be
               installed as executable perl scripts when the module is
               installed.  May be given as an array reference of the files, or
               as a hash reference whose keys are the files (and whose values
               will currently be ignored).

               The default is to install no script files - in other words,
               there is no default location where Module::Build will look for
               script files to install.
