I guess that comes from this code:
	  for my $m (sort(qw/fmtutil.cnf mktex.cnf pdftexconfig.tex/)) {
	    info(sprintf("%-17s %s", "$m:", `kpsewhich $m`));
and the missing argument means that the backticks didn't work.

What is your
pointing at? I hope not csh or so - because that would be badly broken.
/bin/sh should be something bourne/ksh/whatever, but **never** (t)csh.

Backticks should use /bin/sh - AFAIR ...
