Version: TWiki 5.0.2

Description: In the "bin/configure" file, line 149-152:

$foundAt = "was found at $path/$modpath";
if ( !-r $foundAt ) {
$foundAt .= ", but I don't have permission to read it.";

'-r' in 'if' statement means "File is readable by effective uid/gid(or not)", while we can see the $foundAt is just a string, not 'File'. I think it maybe wrote as below:

$foundAt = "was found at $path/$modpath";
if ( !-r $path/$modpath ) {
$foundAt .= ", but I don't have permission to read it.";

Hope you can verify this issue. Thanks,
