[Catalyst] perms on gen script/ files differ between platforms

I noticed today that generating a new Catalyst app under 2 different platforms, 
Mac OS X and Linux/CentOS, produces files with different sets of initial file 

Both of these are the latest released Catalyst under Perl 5.12.1.

On Mac OS X, the initial 5 files in script/ had these permissions:


... where the owner can execute but no one else can do anything.

On CentOS, the same files had these permissions:


... where no one can execute but everyone can read.

So what is the reason for this difference?  Is it intentional or a bug?

Thank you. -- Darren Duncan
