I think I went down the same path of discovery and couldn't find
the real solution either.  But like you say it's not terribly important,
and avoids this annoying warning.

Please push it at your convenience.

     I assumed, until now, that this was some kind of serious error.
     But it seems that, in fact, Perl is just saying that it can't
     find the one-line description of the Perl module inside
     lib/  When I change the ABSTRACT_FROM line in Makefile.PL
     to give the abstract itself, e.g.:
           (ABSTRACT       => 'Perl extension to PSPP',
     then that fixes that problem.
     I assume that changing lib/ is a better solution, but I
     tried one or two possibilities and couldn't make that work.
     May I push the change from ABSTRACT_FROM to ABSTRACT (or will you
     fix this the right way)?
