[ANNOUNCE] ExtUtils::MakeMaker 6.21
Message ID:
or a CPAN mirror near you

Small release, mostly to fix building modules that call dir_target() (Tk,
libwin32) or completely rewrite top_targets() (SDBM_File, Compress::Zlib...).

That should solve the last of the known problems with the .exists ->
blibdirs change in 6.18.

    - NetBSD was looking in INSTALLARCHLIB/CORE for libperl isntead of 
      PERL_ARCHLIB/CORE.  Would cause problems if INSTALLARCHLIB was changed
      (ie. LIB or PREFIX used). [Jochen Eisinger]
    - Turns out a handful of modules use dir_target().  Restored a version
      for backwards compatibility.
    - Moved blibdirs target from top_targets() to its own section.  Lots of
      modules rewrite top_targets() so blibdirs wouldn't be written.

    - Fixing dos2unix on Cygwin.  In-place editing doesn't work 100% so we
      take a more conservative approach.
    - Small postamble.t test temp file cleanup fix for Cygwin and Windows.
    - Small Command.t test fix for 5.5.3.  No real bug [rt 4290]
    - Small Liblist fix for Cygwin and import libraries [Gerrit P. Haase]
    - metafile error message slightly mangled.  Bare $! mistake confusing 
      nmake [rt 4285 4301]

This Ring, no other, is made by the elves, 
Who'd pawn their own mother to grab it themselves.
Ruler of creeper, mortal, and scallop,
This is a sleeper that packs quite a wallop.
