is not a symlink, and there are no symlinks anywhere under
the /usr/lib/perl5 directory:
% ls -ld /usr/lib/perl5
drwxrwx---+ 5 kst Users 0 May 29 19:04 /usr/lib/perl5
% find /usr/lib/perl5 -type f | wc -l
% find /usr/lib/perl5 -type d | wc -l
% find /usr/lib/perl5 -type l | wc -l
I don't know just what problem you're having, but you're likely to get
better help on the Cygwin mailing list, <http://cygwin.com/lists.html>.
