MakeMaker changes in 5.9.0
Message ID:
I noticed that Devel::Cover failed to build on bleadperl and tracked the
problem down to a change in MakeMaker.

Searching PMLIBDIRS used to have a filter

  if ($_ eq "CVS" || $_ eq "RCS")

but now that is

  unless ($self->libscan($_))

And my libscan function wasn't expecting that.

Now, I can easily change my libscan function, but this is just a
friendly warning from the backwards compatibility police that there may
be problems ahead.
