In a standard foswiki 1.0.9 installation, I find the following paths (among others) in the output of configure under "@INC library path": /path/to/foswiki/lib/CPAN/lib//arch /path/to/foswiki/lib/CPAN/lib//5.10.1/x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi /path/to/foswiki/lib/CPAN/lib//5.10.1 /path/to/foswiki/lib/CPAN/lib/

Clearly, the double slashes after "CPAN/lib" should not be there. Currently, that does not cause any obvious problems, but might under more special circumstances. The problem seems to be the trailing slash in line 55 of /path/to/foswiki/bin/setlib.cfg: $CPANBASE = "$foswikiLibPath/CPAN/lib/" unless $CPANBASE;

If I remove the trailing slash, the problem vanishes. However, I cannot tell if that causes other problems (that I haven't noticed) somewhere else.

Confirmed on trunk too. It seems like an easy fix, but maybe someone like GeorgeClark who is more familiar with configure code can make sure.

None of our other file system path settings are supposed to include the trailing slash, so I believe that eliminating the trailing slash is probably the correct solution. I'll commit a fix and we can deal with the fallout.
