Subject: PAR::Packer unable to build under Win32/ActivePerl v5.14.2

I received an error building PAR::Packer under ActivePerl v5.14.2 on Windows 7 (64-bit). The specific error was because MakeMaker would fail on the "use File::Glob ':bsd_glob';" for this version of Perl. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but it appears that, with the way File::Glob is being used, this can be changed to just "use File::Glob;" and where glob() is used in find_dll() can be changed to bsd_glob() (it doesn't look like it depends on the special behavior that "use File::Glob ':bsd_glob';" gives). At least, in my case, this allowed me to successfully build and run PAR::Packer 1.018. I'll attach "perl -v" and "perl -V" output separately, but I am using PAR 1.007 and PAR-Dist 0.49 from ActiveState's build, and managed to build PAR-Packer 1.018 by hand (let CPAN do most of the heavy lifting, and re-ran the makefile myself) Thanks!

You're absolutely right: "use File::Glob ':bsd_glob'" has the side effect of mapping CORE::glob to File::Glob::bsd_glob and some versions of MakeMaker seem to rely on the legacy behaviour of CORE::glob. I've committed your suggestion, will be in the next release of PAR::Packer. Thank, Roderich
