FAQ
I was using the bleadperl version of cpan to install a module
(B::Utils) and here is what I saw. The second ...... DONE line took a
long time (more than a minute) to execute, makeing me wonder if it had
crashed, but it finished eventually.

Either File::Spec should be changed to not warn, or CPAN needs to be
changed not to pass undef to File::Spec::Win32::catdir.

Ps: this output is what i see immediately after installing blead from
rsync. I note that it doesnt require the CPAN config process that I
would have expected.

    The latter sounds good to me, probably with a carp() to reveal the point where
    undef was passed in.
