Actually, build 817 is far from flakey (build 816 was flakey is
aspects not related to these specific issues). Module::Install is to

Anyway, this issue shouldn't be happening because Catalyst should be
using version 0.61 of Module::Install since 5.67, which corrects this
issue. In fact, version up to 5.6901 it uses the correct version

However, version 5.6902 was packed by a different person which built
the tarball using Module::Install 0.54. Thus, Catalyst 5.6902 can't be
installed correctly under ActivePerl since build 816. This also
happens with any other modules which were packed with any version of
Module::Install prior to 0.61.

The original poster can wait for a new Catalyst release correcting
this issue or, as a work-around, delete the "inc" folder inside the
build directory and use "nmake" manually.
