lib/ExtUtils/MANIFEST.SKIP is broken in 5.8.6
Message ID:

5.8.6 went out without this fix. :(

The wrong MANIFEST.SKIP is used in lib/ExtUtils/MANIFEST.SKIP.  This
means folks using 5.8.6 running "make manifest" can get all sorts of 
interesting garbage.

Its not that major.  5.8.5 has the same problem and nobody's seems to have
noticed, but could that patch get into maint before its forgotten and
5.8.7 rolls around?
