IIRC, having Makefile.PL exit a non-zero value should make all CPAN
smokers ignore the module (no FAIL nor SKIP). Since it should be
quite straight-forward to check if tla is available on the system and
there's no point on installing Arch module unless tla is available, failing
early in Makefile.PL is a Good Thing, IMHO.
