Subject: install_base should put libraries into lib/perl5
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 470b
--install_base currently puts libraries into $install_base/lib. This is not a useful default once you consider the most common use: --install_base=~ In this case you want libraries to go under ~/lib/perl5 rather than assume ~/lib is Perl's own playground. While there are situations in which you want to install under lib, such as when the install base is /usr/local/perl5.8.6, the most common case is trying to install into your home or other "non admin" directory.

This was already fixed in CVS a while ago. It'll be part of the 0.27_xx series, which will become 0.28xx eventually when it goes non-beta. We should get 0.27_01 out pretty soon. -Ken
