I had occasion to look at this ticket again while looking at this evening.

Only a subset of these distributions have their own Makefile.PL.

1. Two of these distros use 5.012 as the cut-off rather than 5.011.  Is that acceptable?


2. I have prepared a patch for dist/Cwd/Makefile.PL.
The tests in dist/Cwd/t/ pass, but I get a failure in t/porting/utils.t:

# Failed test 38 - Porting/makerel compiles at porting/utils.t line 89
#      got "Subroutine File::Spec::Unix::canonpath redefined at lib/ line 249.\nSubroutine File::Spec::Unix::catdir redefined at lib/ line 249.\nSubroutine File::Spec::Unix::catfile redefined at lib/ line 249.\nPorting/makerel syntax OK\n"
# expected "Porting/makerel syntax OK\n"
not ok 38 - Porting/makerel compiles

Can anyone diagnose this?

Thank you very much.
