Subject: prefix= breaks distributions named libwhatever, like LWP
If the CPAN distribution file name (libwww-perl-whatever.tar.gz) matches the debian package name (libwww-perl), CPANPLUS blows up when building a deb if prefix is '': $ cpan2dist --skiptest --verbose --default-ignorelist --format CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb --dist-opts prefix= --defaults --dist-opts distdir=$PWD/deb LWP eventually dies with: Key 'file' (/home/hdp/.cpanplus/5.8.8/build/libwww-perl-5.823/../libwww-perl_5.823-1.diff.gz) is of invalid type for 'CPANPLUS::Internals::Utils::_move' provided by CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb::create at /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/CPANPLUS/Dist/ line 927 [ERROR] Failed to move '/home/hdp/.cpanplus/5.8.8/build/libwww-perl-5.823/../libwww-perl_5.823-1.diff.gz' to its final destination '/home/hdp/code/deb/main/pool/lib/l/libwww-perl/libwww-perl_5.823-1.diff.gz' It failed to move because the directory '/home/hdp/.cpanplus/5.8.8/build/libwww-perl-5.823' got moved already; it's caught by the glob on line 917 of The source directory clearly shouldn't be moved into the debian pool structure at all. I'll attach a patch.
