I believe this is now fixed in blead.

I used a poisoned ../lib similar to what Nicholas described, this caused failures
in both utils.t and manifest.t - both for the same reason - they chdir to the build
tree root, then supply -I.. to the tools they execute.

Fixed in b6e1fb883d303e0b054ab2f7475e97020bcfa201 (utils.t) and 7f1eeb9406015c9472a52da27518397b1959eb4d (manifest.t).

I also modified pending-author.t to use File::Spec->devnull instead of a literal /dev/null, which allows this test to work on Win32.
