[tex-live] ctan-o-mat in 2018 pretest

running ctan-o-mat  (from anywhere) in cygwin tl pretest  I get the error

$ ctan-o-mat
Can't open perl script
"/usr/local/texlive/2018/bin/x86_64-cygwin/ctan-o-mat.pl": No such
file or directory

It just tries to exec
exec perl "$0.pl" "$@"

so the one in the bin directory in the path doesn't find the actual
perl in scripts, it seems to work fine if called directly:

$ perl /usr/local/texlive/2018/texmf-dist/scripts/ctan-o-mat/ctan-o-mat.pl

not sure if this is an issue with the upstrean ctan-o-mat or the way
it's packaged in TL?
