build.pl fails in cleanup. It appears to try to remove a /tmp directory that no longer exists.
(in cleanup) Can't call method "FETCH" on an undefined value at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/File/Path.pm line 185 during global destruction.

The fix appears to be to change Build.pm to test if the directory exists before removing it.

     my $self = shift;
-    File::Path::rmtree( $self->{tmpDir} ) if $self->{tmpDir};
+    File::Path::rmtree( $self->{tmpDir} ) if $self->{tmpDir} && (-d "$self->{tmpDir}");
