I am compiling perl-5.8.0 in chrooted environment where many
system tools are not in its proper places. In my case shell
utility "pwd" is in /usr/local/bin.

While compiling perl, Cwd::cwd() fails. After some probing
I found that /usr/local/bin is not in the lists of locations
where "pwd" is searched. Once I made a symlink of 
/usr/local/bin/pwd to /usr/bin/pwd, the compilation proceeded
smoothly. I am not sure whether /usr/local/bin is not searched
intentionally. If so, then it is not a bug. Else please fix
this module.
