Reproduce:
1) clean install of ActivePerl 5.8.8.819 on WinXP
2) Install nmake in path
3) run "cpan CPAN" to install the latest version of CPAN module
4) ran cpan, accepted default for new CPAN configuration, ran "o conf 
prefer_installer MB" and "o conf commit" then "q"
5) run "cpan Module::Build" to install the latest version of Module::Build
6) run "cpan" and then "install S/SE/SENDU/bioperl-1.5.2_005-RC*b*.tar.gz"
7) Choose not to install optional modules
8) Error shows here

Installing all optional modules doesn't produce the error. However, It 
produces the problem i've told you about missing "scripts" dir 
(actually, it's not just the scripts dir - it's all but the base dir it 
was unpacked into).
