dist/Cwd *is* PathTools.  blead is upstream.  The CPAN distribution name
happens to be different from the directory name in blead.  I don’t know
the history of that.

Bugs relating to PathTools modules in general can go in this tracker. 
Bugs relating to the CPAN (e.g., the Makefile.PL, which is not in blead)
packaging go in the CPAN queue.  At least that’s how I report them.  In
actuality, both categories of bugs end up in both queues.

Yes, it’s a mess.

(And I don’t know why the CPAN Makefile.PL cannot be in core.)

I don’t know the answer to that.
