That is true, at least for WinXP (not sure about older Windows versions out
there).  I was using 'Root::IO->catfile' but found 'use lib 't/lib' works.
I may have a few of the 'catfile' versions floating around out there, which
may be where that originated.

Note that if you plan on using Test::More with the bioperl-run test suite,
you should add it to the bioperl-run CVS distribution directory in 't/lib'.
Most people will have it installed, but you never know.
