Subject: MyConfig feature uses $ENV{HOME} which is not compatible with Win32
The MyConfig feature makes use of $ENV{HOME} Unfortunately, the HOME environment variable does not exist on Windows. There, finding your home directory is a little more complicated. Ideally, ignoring dependency issues, what you probably want is File::Spec->catdir( File::HomeDir->my_data, '.cpan' )

No problem, I'd put File:HomeDir into the Bundle::CPAN and replace he 4 places where $ENV{HOME} is used with your alternative. Experimental checkin as rev. 641 -- andreas
