Sorry for the extremely late followup, but I've only just had the
opportunity to try 1.3.1.

This is already where it goes wrong for me. In my version, the following
lines are prepended:

# Configured by Module::Build
# on Wed Aug 17 13:12:31 2005
# these lines prepended by ./Build

$CONFDIR = /etc/dirvish;    
use        /usr/share/dirvish/dirvish.pl;

Note no quotes round the $CONFDIR value, no 'use lib' and no

I downloaded the 1.3.1 tarball just today.

BTW, wouldn't it make sense to do "chmod 755 Build.PL" before making the
tarball? Then the chmod instruction could go away...
