OK, trying that now.
Is the bootstrapping *ever* supposed to work automagically? If not,
shouldn't CPAN.pm etc. figure out how to break the cycle? I understand in
general this can be a hard problem, but it irks me that CPAN can't update
itself without help (especially given the big hint of "Try install
Bundle::CPAN" everytime I install something else and CPAN is behind --
which, come to think of it, is always behind because it can't update
