Hmm.  It ran a lot faster because the build failed.   The first sign
of trouble was this:

        Making Carp (all)
%DCL-W-IVVERB, unrecognized command verb - check validity and spelling
WARNING - is building Carp using EU::MM, as it found file
'lib.DIR' at line 476.

which happened for several other modules as well.  Then things really
went south with:

Running Makefile.PL in dist/PathTools

I have not looked at the new code in yet.

The next time you build there, first put:

$ set process/parse=extended

into your  That's necessary to preserve case in arguments
without quoting and I suspect Module::Build (and probably
Test::Harness) has abandoned any pretense of quoting consistently.

I only see these two with blead:
