That's easy enough: something like:

    chomp($pwd = `pwd -W 2>/dev/null`);
    $pwd or chomp($pwd = `pwd`);

(will 2>/dev/null work in Windows?)

Anyway, as Earnie says we won't worry about this stuff for 3.81.

I'm very pleased with this beta; a few nits here and there (and lots of
warnings etc. for the MSC stuff) but it seems to be working well overall
and I'm getting good testing on the ports--thanks everyone!

Maybe we'll do an rc release next week and then...?!?!
