Any news? I still have this issue at all my systems.
Comment 2 Sergiy Borodych 2016-05-12 08:24:51 UTC
AFAIU this is an upstream defect, please close it here as 'UPSTREAM'

Usually we keep these open... otherwise we just get duplicates.

Might make sense to package Math-GSL properly.
Comment 4 Sergiy Borodych 2016-07-28 14:55:34 UTC
Is it the issue still present?
Comment 5 Juergen Rose 2016-07-28 16:14:58 UTC
The installation of Math-GSL with g-cpan still fails:
- It starts with the installatio of Math-GSL-0.36 and 
- then endless tryes to install 'module-Build' version '0.4218', see the attached log file.

Well, seems like another kind of bug.
Please create a new bug report for it, with all info.
Also using '-v' option would be helpful.
I will try to reproduce it later.
