Request for *nix help in moving two distros
Message ID:
I'm attempting to move Cwd and List-Utils to their rightful locations
to match their CPAN distribution names, i.e. PathTools and
Scalar-List-Utils respectively.

I have this working on Windows in the single commit on the
smoke-me/steveh/dirnames branch:

There's very little to it: just the obvious, plus two exceptions added
to the logic in and win32/

However, when smoked, this produced a failure in t/porting/FindExt.t
on Linux, with some of the *ext* keys in %Config::Config containing
the wrong extension names.

I believe that some logic in Makefile.SH (around line 196) will need
something similar to what is done in win32/

(and/or possibly elsewhere too, I'm not sure).

It would probably take me numerous iterations of attempting something
and examining the smoke results beforfe I got this right, so I would
be very grateful if somebody on *nix were able to supply the missing
piece of this puzzle for me.

These are the only two dual-lived distros living in the 'wrong' folder
name in the core, and it would be nice to fix them.
