Subject: CPAN::Meta does not actually install any files under Cygwin Perl 5.10.1 (possibly all Perl's under that)
As mentioned on Twitter, with that old Perl CPAN::Meta passes all tests, but fails to install any files: https://gist.github.com/wchristian/c197c7101cffef331758 According to discussion in #toolchain (btw, where's your bnc?), this is because @INC on Perls <= 5.10.1 lists core lib before site lib, and one comment made was: 15:58:08 (ilmari_) hence dual-life modules having to do INSTALL_DIRS=perl

I don't see why that matters, since CPAN::Meta wasn't dual-life until after the change in @INC ordering. I would think "make install" would give *some* output regardless. (Is EU::MM up to date?) What do you get if you set VERBINST to true? David
