RH7.3 box, rpm-4.0.4-7x.18, cpan2rpm 2.014.

Trying to build
http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-module/Text/Text-
Tabs+Wrap-2001.0929.tar.gz fails, due to the '+' sign in
the name.

Editing Makefile.PL to take out the +, mv the directory
to take out the +, and tar it with the name, and it packs
just fine.

    thanks for posting this. I finally got the chance to debug and
    fix it. it had to do with literalizing the %buildroot in a regexp
    inside the perl code in the spec file. took me a bit to figure it
    out.

    the patch will be in the 2.023 release. As always you can get
    a copy of the unreleased version from the home page.

    thanks again.
