Subject: Setting license to 'gpl_3' causes problems on MacOSX
I was trying to submit a PR on WebService-GarminConnect, but running `perl Build.PL` caused errors on Mac OS X. The problem turned out to be: license => 'gpl_3', That's what the CPAN::Meta::Spec (https://metacpan.org/pod/CPAN::Meta::Spec#license) says it should be set to, but on the Mac's case-insensitive file system it blows up. Changing it to 'GPL_3' worked on my Mac, but then didn't work on the author's case-sensitive filesystem. Cheers, Neil
