WARNING: default LWP install on Mac OS X is bad, Bad, BAD
Message ID:
perl.libwww-2420@nntp.perl.org
A default install of LWP on the currently shipping Mac OS X places HEAD in
/usr/bin/HEAD.  Unfortunately this is a case-insensitive filesystem.  So long
/usr/bin/head.  I discovered this as I was preparing to install Xfree86 and now
I have no /usr/bin/head.  Phooey.
