Ah!  So, it's trying to use the files created as part of the build process to determine where lib is.  That seems fair.

And so:

wwonko at holly:~/projects/MyApp/script $ ./myapp_server.pl 
Can't locate MyApp.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /home/wwonko/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.2/lib/site_perl/5.14.2/i686-linux /home/wwonko/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.2/lib/site_perl/5.14.2 /home/wwonko/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.2/lib/5.14.2/i686-linux /home/wwonko/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.2/lib/5.14.2 .) at /home/wwonko/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.2/lib/site_perl/5.14.2/Module/Runtime.pm line 317.

wwonko at holly:~/projects/MyApp/script $ ls ..
Changes  lib/  Makefile.PL  myapp.conf  myapp.psgi  README  root/  script/  t/
wwonko at holly:~/projects/MyApp/script $ 

Which suggests there is, indeed a bug, as there's a Makefile.PL in the same directory as lib, right where catalyst.pl put it.

Given the additional information you provided, it's possible for someone else to debug this and maybe help solve the problem.

Thank you!

I hope I'll have time to dig into it and see what's going wrong, and make sure I am not making matters worse for someone else.  I may not until the weekend.
