[Note: I've only reproduced this bug in v0.20, but I checked the CPAN source of v0.20_02 and that version appears to still have the same bug] If the current directory lacks a ./lib directory, then find_dist_packages() fails with the following error: Can't use an undefined value as a HASH reference at /perl/lib/site_perl/5.8.0/Module/Build/ line 1624. This happens on the line that calls find_pm_files(). The failure ultimately occurs because _find_file_by_type() has the following line: return unless -d 'lib'; which should probably be: return {} unless -d 'lib'; since the callers expect a hash reference.
Thanks, I've now fixed this bug in CVS but I need to write a test for it. -Ken
