If I try to install Apache::AuthenIMAP, it installs to site_lib/ instead of site_lib/Apache/ $>cpan Apache::AuthenIMAP CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.56_01) Reading '/root/.cpan/Metadata' Database was generated on Thu, 11 May 2017 08:17:02 GMT Running install for module 'Apache::AuthenIMAP' CPAN: LWP::UserAgent loaded ok (v6.24) Fetching with LWP: CPAN: YAML loaded ok (v1.23) CPAN: Digest::SHA loaded ok (v5.95_01) Fetching with LWP: CPAN: Compress::Zlib loaded ok (v2.069001) Checksum for /root/.cpan/sources/authors/id/M/MI/MICB/ ok CPAN: File::Temp loaded ok (v0.2304) CPAN: CPAN::Meta::Requirements loaded ok (v2.140) CPAN: CPAN::Meta loaded ok (v2.150005) Package seems to come without Makefile.PL.
