Pulling out the BUILD_REQUIRES entry with captures works just fine:

Magic-box:Dancer-1.3051 root# diff  orig.Makefile.PL Makefile.PL
<         'Test::More'              => '0.94',
<         'Tie::Hash::NamedCapture' => '0',
>         'Test::More'              => '0.94'

Also, I noticed in the cpan shell, if I answer 'No' to prepending
'Tie::Hash::NamedCapture' the install works.
