|Subject:||Math::BigInt is being installed in sitelib instead of overwriting the version included in perl|
I am building Math::BigInt 1.81 on perl 5.8.8. The module is being installed in /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8. The problem is that the default @INC has the perl lib directory, /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8. before the site directory. This causes Perl to always the version which came with perl. I think the problem is that Math::BigInt 1.81 was converted to Module::Install. The Makefile.PL contains: makemaker_args INSTALLDIRS => 'perl'; It looks like Module::Install 0.65 overwrites the INSTALLDIRS arg from the installdirs property. I think Makefile.PL needs to have: install_as_core This might be considered a bug in Module::Install 0.65.
