This fails with install_share; in Makefile.PL: $ perl Makefile.PL $ make $ sudo -u otheruser make install Reason for this is that \t\$(NOECHO) \$(CHMOD) $perm_dir "$root${S}$path" cannot be run as non-root user on a directory owned by another user. Questions: 1) Why is this chmod command required to be run at all? 2) Can it be a postamble to the default "make" action instead? My solution now is that I've created a install_share_without_root; action which is identical to Module::Install::Share, but simply skips the "chmod" step - seems to work nicely.
