I see the same list on OS X that Steve sees on Windows.  Quite a few
of these have explicit rules in the _cleaner2 target in Makefile.SH,

        -rmdir lib/Exporter lib/Encode/Unicode lib/Encode/MIME/Header

but that rmdir probably fails if the directory is not empty as is in
fact the case with lib/Exporter.  At first glance it appears to have
something to do with the cases where we generate pm_to_blib directly
and neither generate nor run a Makefile.PL.  Possibly there is
something is not handling?
