I also also cannot reproduce this.  I note that PPI has a bunch of 
pre-requisites, and I started from a fresh, clean install, so there may be 
some issue with previously installed stuff somewhere.

Yes, that's a real possibility too.

Also (unrelated to this bug report), I'm puzzled by what this pair of 
arguments is intended to do:

	     -Dusethreads -Uuseithreads

In older versions of perl, I think it would end up using the 5005threads, 
in a roundabout way.  In current versions of perl, where 5005threads are 
no longer available, I think it ends up using ithreads, even though you 
have explicitly asked it not to.
