Installed as default perl on my laptop including all modules I had
installed under 5.26.2

I counted a whopping 12141 .pm files in the new tree(s)

I needed some 'use lib '.';' in some Makefile.PL's
The were about 6 distro's that complained about unescaped left brace
(and thus failed the test)

The only module that failed was Crypt::SSLeay
I don't think I should care anymore

Thanks to all who contributed to this new release!
