Here are Andreas' notes:

MakeMaker 5.11 is only half a step forward.

It fixes the most urgent problems and includes a few new subroutines
from Ilya's pen without actually using them. It does not yet install
into sitelib. It does not write a .packlist file anymore (this is a
transitory non-solution, I will try to replace the .packlist
computation by a safer replacement).

But it does fix the known bugs: extralibs was wrong, link() was called
on systems without link(), manpages for man1dir were installed
completely wrong, if xsubpp was too old we reached a runtime error,
libg++ could not be handled because of a missing \Q, xsubpp was called
with -noprototypes per default. A few installation directories didn't
keep up with the defaults from 5.002 when used with PREFIX.

I apologize for unresolved issues, especially with regard to Ilya's
changes, but I prefer to have one thing done before I try the next
changes.

Get it from CPAN/authors/id/ANDK/MakeMaker-5.11.tar.gz

The testing I have done is limited, because perl5.002b1d has problems
with some newXS calls. So extensions where I had to use xubpp could
not be compiled here. Wherever I had already run xsubpp, everything
seemed ok.

I append the Changes file below.

          Installation of files to INST_MAN1DIR was missing a
          $self->catdir and a dot between the filename and the
          MAN1EXT.

          There was a rare problem with the .packlist file: The
          .packlist entries are appended to the .packlist file in
          INST_ARCHAUTOLIB. The file is rewritten later to contain
          only unique entries. For the rewriting of the file I used
          perl -i.bak. That's not ok for AFS and dies if the .packlist
          file doesn't exist for any other reason.  THIS PROBLEM IS
          NOT YET RESOLVED. I have dropped support for .packlist until
          I have a nice fix for this.

          Don Jackson saw this on his sun4-sunos box.

          Was a precedence bug, solved.

          Ilya sent a big patch for OS2. It was a bit complicated to
          fold it in, so I included only the easy changes, and would
          like to reconsider the thing, when there is a bit more time
          and less pressure. All the new methods are included, but not
          yet used, so the next patch will be easier to comprehend.

          manifypods had no dependencies. Added them, although the
          correct solution would be to have dependencies on the
          produced manpages. The latter is not possible, because they
          contain colons.

          Two occurrences of \Q in did not have a coresponding \E.
          Fixed.

          Liblist choked on -lg++, because the \Q was missing
          completely. Fixed.

          Manifest.pm tried a link() even on systems without link()
          available. Fix supplied by Ilya applied.

          Introduced XS_VERSION to support a better matching control
          between the VERSION of the *.pm and the *.xs part of the
          package.

          Dropped the default -noprototype argument to xsubpp.
