in http://www.bugzilla.org/docs216/html/stepbystep.html#install-perl
<<perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Bundle::Bugzilla"'>>
but, it does not work under a regular (non-root) user id.

see http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207039#c2 for the corresponding
problems.

In http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bug.html?id=2668 the MakeMaker maintainer

Bundle::Bugzilla is a bundle module, all it does is contain a list of other modules to 
install. Nearly all (if not all) of these modules use MakeMaker internally. 
Bundle::Bugzilla's Makefile.PL is never even executed by CPAN, it's just (IIRC) there for 
completeness. 

The modules used by Bugzilla should use Module::Build, but thats unlikely to happen 
anytime soon for all modules. In the meantime, I recomend that you install the modules 
manually (without Bundle::Bugzilla) as a non-root user. Documentation exists on the web 
in various places on how to install perl modules manually and with CPAN.

INVALID as Bundle::Bugzilla cannot use Module::Build.
