maint-5.10 status on VMS

I've finally got Test::Smoke mostly working on VMS except for my local  
mail configuration, thus the manual attachment here.  It shows the  
only failures I've seen recently:

     lib/ExtUtils/t/ 
Installapi2....................................FAILED at test 15
     lib/ExtUtils/t/ 
Install........................................FAILED at test 15

which started happening occasionally (but not consistently) after  
Yves' recent changes to ExtUtils::Install. When I run these tests  
individually they usually (though not always) fail once and then  
succeed when run again.  The test that fails is the same in both  
scripts and looks like:

install( { 'blib/lib' => 'install-test/lib/perl',
            read   => 'install-test/packlist',
            write  => 'install-test/packlist'
          },
        0, 1);
ok( ! -d 'install-test/lib/perl',        'install made dir (dry run)');


So it's testing for the non-existence of a directory that should not  
be there because we only did a dry run.  The most likely explanation  
is something is not getting cleaned up properly elsewhere so we are  
finding something we shouldn't.  So far I have not been able to spot  
why the fairly minimal recent changes would cause that, but I'll keep  
looking.
