Subject: installdir should be set to 'core'
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 271b
Makefile's installdir should be set to 'core', so that it installs over the core version included with Perl. Otherwise it installs in 'site/lib', but programs don't see it because the core modules in 'lib' have priority. See http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bug.html?id=9443

I think maybe this should be "perl" and not "core" as the new version gives "make: *** No rule to make target `pure_core_install', needed by `pure_install'. Stop." during install of 0.80

Can someone give me a definitive answer on this. I's rather not repatch it until there's agreement on what the right patch is. Thanks, Damian

It should absolutely be "perl", not "core". People may argue that dual-lived modules from CPAN should never install into the "perl" directories of the core distribution, but if it comes to "perl" vs. "core", the correct name for installing into the core libs is "perl". Resolved at the very least in 0.83.
