David, I contributed some code back a few years ago to fix issues with HTML generation on ActiveState Perl distros (RT#53478). The changes were added to version .3603 and one of the code changes was to disable man page generation on non-Unix systems. I noticed that in, that this code is commented out (line 5231). There is a note in the code that you commented out the line because it causes t/manifypods.t to fail on windows. Here is a fix for t/manifypods.t that will allow you to uncomment the code in and disable man page generation on windows. The code change is: File t/manifypods.t, change line 10 from: if ( Module::Build::ConfigData->feature('manpage_support') ) { to: if ( Module::Build::ConfigData->feature('manpage_support') && Module::Build::is_unixish() ) { This change uses the same logic that is used in 'install_map' in, only Unix like systems will test for manpage generation, otherwise the tests are skipped.
