It installs fine, whether you want to add DEPEND line is up to you.

# emerge -pv dev-perl/MailTools

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

It complains because Test::Pod is listed in Makefile.PL. Other distributions don't list it in Makefile.PL.

MailTools only uses (well, it tries to use, ie it doesn't even fail if it is not installed,) this module during tests. If you enable tests, the ebuild will install Test::Pod.

So ignore the warning.

Upstream: "Better: I will move t/99pod.t to the (relatively new) xt/ directory"

Thanks Martin.
