6.26 release candidate.

This alpha release overhauls the blibdirs generation yet again to fix
design issues introduced in 6.18.  blibdirs broke the generation of the
SVN perl bindings.  The new system is more robust and completely does away
with intermediate timestamp files, the directories are now targets directly.

Otherwise, a whole bunch of redundant VMS and Windows code was eliminated.
But that was in 6.25_01.

Pumpkings take note, a few new .pm files and tests have been added.

    - dir_target() is back.  Now each directory to be created has its own 
      target like before, but no more .exists or blibdirs.ts files.  This
      ensures that each blib directory is created as necessary and fixes
      things like SVN's perl bindings.

6.25_02  Mon Dec 20 03:31:49 EST 2004
    - Set PM_FILTER as late as possible so it can see all the earlier
      macro definitions.  Necessary for challenged make implementations
      like nmake.  Should fix Mail::SpamAssassin installs on Win32.
      [rt.cpan.org 4545]
    - clean and realclean are now more careful about accidentally deleting
      directories instead of files.  [rt.cpan.org 6851]
    - small fix for parallel builds, make sure pm_to_blib has run before
      we try to use stuff in blib. [rt.cpan.org 6460]
    - MAKEFILE=foo appears to have been broken for recursive builds and
      several other things.  I think this was broken by 6.18.

    * *.bak added to the default MANIFEST.SKIP.
    * META.yml will no longer be generated in the build directory.  It will
      only appear in the distdir.  This should make it easier on developers,
      they don't have to worry about checking the file in all the time.
    * Similarly, the SIGNATURE file will not be updated in the build 
      directory.  It will only be generated in the distdir.
    - A bunch of redundant Win9x and VMS code removed.
    - 'make test' on Windows no longer pre-expands its list of test files.
      This caused problems on large distributions like bioperl.  Thanks to
      Tim Bunce for suggesting the obvious fix.

6.25  Wed Dec 15 06:59:46 EST 2004
    - Build.PL was being considered like Module_pm.PL.  Build.PL is now 
      ignored.  [radek@karnet.pl] [rt.cpan.org 8809]
    - Devel::Cover cover_db/ directory now ignored by MANIFEST.SKIP
