Subject: LIB and PREFIX ignored for non-root installs
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 321b
When using the recommended way to do non-root installs is to set the "makepl_arg" to PREFIX=/what/ever or LIB=/what/ever Module::Build does not respect these parameters, making non-root installs using CPAN.PM impossible. (or at least extremely inconvenient, since Makefile.PL will not recognize --install_base)

Hi, Thanks for the report. This was actually on purpose (because I felt that PREFIX was too evil and complicated), but I was convinced by others that my position was a bad thing, so it's already been fixed in the latest beta releases (0.27_xx). -Ken
