Xindy does not work with tl-Perl on my pc Windows XP, at office with MAC
OS X (snow leopard) all is fine.
I´m using TeXLive 2010 pretest.

The revision of xindy is 18894 (2.4)
		    xindy-win32	18459
Xindy release 2.4
Xindy.pl script version: 1.16
Xindy kernel version 3.0
CLISP version 2.48 (2009-07-28) (built on cj3001517-a []
architecture: PC/?86

TL-Perl v5.10.1, bzw. strawberry v5.12.0

I invoke xindy with this command

xindy -v -C utf8 -M meinBuch.xdy meinBuch-persons.idx 

This echoes

Running filter:

GNU CLISP: -x with lisp-file is invalid: ´(searchpath´

Perl.exe h:/texlive/2010/texmf/scripts/xindy/xindy.pl -v -C utf8 -M
meinBuch.xdy meinBuch-persons.idx

Without the option -M meinBuch.xdy it´s the same.

J:\temp\  is my TEMP-Path.
I´m thinking it´s not a bug, but the settings of PATH or other variables
are wrong.
For testing PATH was set to 

I invoked xindy with the option -d and -t, this show the searchpath,
separated with ":".

I don´t know, from where comes line 6 and 7, a log-File was not built.
