Under NetBSD 1.6.2, mkpath (of File/ installed with perl-5.6.1nb7
package does like trailing slashes:

 mkdir /tmp/dir1/
 mkdir /tmp/dir1/: No such file or directory at mkpath.test line 5

(It works fine without trailing slash.)

I noticed this when using wip/html2latex.

It works fine under NetBSD 1.6.2 with perl-5.8.1.

Is there any plan to make perl 5.8 (or newer) the default soon? (Maybe in
two weeks after the freeze?) tells us that the stable release is 5.8.3.
