Possible fix: If I add #define PATH_MAX 512 on row 30, just below #endif /* LIBSSH2_APINO >= 200507211326 */ in the SSH2.c file and on line 21 in the SSH2.xs file, this error goes away. I don't know if doing this is a good thing (probably not) but the error goes away after that.
Fixed in 0.06 (to be released shortly). Using MAXPATHLEN, since Perl seems to go to some lengths to define it for us.
