Oh that is the problem is it!

Are any commands actually run? 
For me, I just get the semi-debug "Making POSIX" type messages.

If so it seems that's -M tests are not working right.
On NTFS at least it works okay on my slugish machine, but perhaps FAT32 
(or whatever) has retained DOS's 2s granularity ..

The main reason for the change was to avoid a lot of tedious to get right 
by hand extra rules in when Makfile.PL's for extensions
should build functional Makefiles.
