Hi Hans,

Would you apply this fix please? The problem only shows up using
Patrick's install script, because the 'normal' distributions
use a stub that always calls perl without the -w switch (<sigh>).

Also, it would be prudent to start the scripts with an explicit
"use warnings;" line to prevent these problems in the future.

Greetings, Taco

Your system is fine, so no worries. Those warning lines are annoying
but harmless. They'll be fixed in the next release, but in the mean
time, you can change lines 344 and 348 of texexec.pl yourself, if you

$ diff texexec.pl.old texexec.pl
< if ($ENV{openin_any} eq 'p') {
> if (defined $ENV{openin_any} && $ENV{openin_any} eq 'p') {
< if (($ENV{shell_escape} eq 'f') || ($ENV{SHELL_ESCAPE} eq 'f')) {
> if ((defined $ENV{shell_escape} && $ENV{shell_escape} eq 'f') ||
>     (defined $ENV{SHELL_ESCAPE} && $ENV{SHELL_ESCAPE} eq 'f')) {

Greetings, Taco
