Subject: File::Spec 0.82 make install does not update site_perl under AIX

Under AIX 4.3.3 ML-11+Post on RS6K-42W (PPC-604e @ 120MHz, 128MB ECC), running perl 5.10.0 (output of perl -V appended): When running build test for Module::Build, the tests all failed with a File::Spec version error (I could not get a later version than 0.82, despite the versions listed above, even using CPAN/CPANPLUS). File::Spec 0.7 install was fine, so it took some digging to be sure that the problem was not in Module::Build. I built File::Spec using CPAN, and by hand, and both reported 0.82 installed and an 'upgrade File::Spec' returned "All modules are up to date for File::Spec". It turns out that the version of File::Spec in /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl is left undisturbed (and thus at 0.7). A manual copy of the files from the source directory fixed the test problem in Module::Build, and a thorough check now matches up the files from the /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.0 & /site_perl branches. File::Spec produced no errors, and reported no problems, during build and install (and perllocal.pod showed File::Spec at 0.82). Not a big deal, but for those of us who are systems folk rather than application programmers, a bit disconcerting (all that implicit faith in 'make/Build install').
