Hi, I downloaded the latest Perl snapshot and configure failed very near
the start with "I can't find cat anywhere".

Apparently, it looks in a standard set of paths (e.g. /usr/bin etc.) but
does not look at $PATH.

Also, the line   _exe=''    looks suspicious, since my cat is
'D:/djgpp/bin/cat.exe' .

Cheers,
Philip
