It still leaves the problem of the CPAN distribution, no?  When I made a
FreeBSD port of Jifty, I got this error during testing phase.  I just
manually created the directory, ran the tests again, made sure they
pass, then finished up with the port.  When port users install it, no
tests are run - since I did it for them.  :-)

So you guys possibly need to take care of it (by creating a symlink, or
whatnot) when rolling the distribution tarball, no?

An undefined problem has an infinite number of solutions.
