Changes since 0.2607:

  - Add workaround for test files because Devel::Cover causes
    require to fail when the argument to require is an expression
    involving File::Spec. We now assign the result of the File::Spec
    call to a variable and then call require with that variable.

  - Tilde-expansion is now performed on arguments passed to a
    compatibility-Makefile.PL [Spotted by Sam Vilain]

  - We now run the 'gzip' and 'tar' values through split_like_shell()
    when running the 'dist' action, so that e.g. the 'gzip' value can
    be set to something like "gzip -f --best" and it'll work
    correctly. [Spotted by Chris Dolan]

  - Work around some bad mojo between Fedora Core [with its very long
    @INC] and old versions of Test::Harness [with its propensity to
    compound the number of @INC entries] that produced an "argument
    list too long" error during testing.  [assisted by Ville Skytta,
    David Golden, & Randy Sims]

  - Killed an infinite loop that would happen in y_n() in interactive
    mode if the author provided no default value. [Max Maischein]
