Correct. I use it, because it doesn't work as used with the default setting.

I'll examine if I can use this instead of perlio. The PERLIO variable
is a little mystery to me, the problem with CPAN and the cpan shell is
that it doesn't work correct if you use no setting, well it works, but
I always need to enter 'Enter' twice then, so I tried PERLIO=perlio
which works as I'm expecting it, never saw that there are CRLF's in
the files (and I don't mind that much as long as it works as it should
work). Depending on the editor you use it is annoying to have CRLF or
to have no CRLF.

perl -V displays not the buildenvironment, but your settings!

I use PERLIO=perlio to run the testsuite because of two errors which
occur without this. And I try to avoid using it during building.
Since I used a PC from a friend to build the dist version I'm not
sure if the environment there is matching my default settings at home.
