Trying to install modules under the new perl, so I started with
something small and simple.... Slurp. Everything goes just fine until
the install stage:

sudo make install
Use of uninitialized value in -d at
/Volumes/NetBSD/pkg/lib/perl5/5.8.0/File/ line 159.
fileparse(): need a valid pathname at
/Volumes/NetBSD/pkg/lib/perl5/5.8.0/File/ line 160
make: *** [pure_site_install] Error 2

Same results whether by hand or via the cpan script (no surprise there,
I think).

FWIW, I was able to install x11/p5-Tk via pkgsrc without problems.

Any ideas?
