Hi Tomek,

I copied a few files that were explicitly stated as missing to run into
the following error:

> C:\install-tl>install-tl -h
> Path:

> Base class package "IO::Handle" is empty.

Replacing everything in "install-tl\tlpkg\installer\perllib" by the
content of "trunk/Master/tlpkg/tlperl/lib" solved the problem.

Thanks for the hint,
