So, it is broken. Can you trace why does it get there? It's supposed to get to 
this rewrite-the-file part only if you have configured the test suite in 
directory /foo and then moved it to /bar and trying to run the test suite 
again. Untill now things were totally broken and you will have to go and 
manually cleanup the autogenerated files in t/conf. This change is supposed to 
gracefully recover. But I guess there are rough edges.
