No, it's a generic problem.  You'll see it anytime you try to build if
there's no auto/POSIX/autosplit.ix available anywhere else along @INC.
I think I've even got an entry for it in bug database dating from shortly
before 5.8.0's release.

It's harmless.

I vaguely recall it might have to do with MakeMaker trying to check
versions or something, but I really don't remember.
