Make sure Module::Install::RTx is installed from CPAN.

You also probably need to tell Module::Install that you're an "author"
now for that dist and you want it to do author-y things that it won't
normally do for end users just installing.

   mkdir -p inc/.author
   perl Makefile.PL

should repopulate inc/.
