cpan> install File::Spec
File::Spec is up to date. Recursive dependency detected: File::Spec => S/SM/SMUELLER/PathTools-3.33.tar.gz => File::Path => D/DL/DLAND/File-Path-2.08.tar.gz => File::Spec. Cannot continue. Show quoted text

File::Path has been around since perl 5.001, so maybe the solution is to drop mention of it from Makefile.PL of the CPAN release.

The File::Path dependency will be dropped by the upcoming CPAN release.
