You make it sound as if Module::Build is somehow coded to _not_ allow dry runs. I don't think this was a design decision Ken made, it's simply not in the code base at present.

There is a "fakeinstall" build target you can use to get a partial dry run (just of the parts done by ExtUtils::Install, aka module installation). I'm sure patches are welcome to expand dry-run functionality ;)
