Bug Information
Severity: Normal
Broken in: 1.80
Fixed in: 1.82



Subject: Math::BigInt is being installed in sitelib instead of overwriting the version included in perl
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 658b
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.

As far as I read the docs, these should equivalent, although you are right that the latter should be prefered (in fact, if it isn't already in there, I forgot to use it :) Show quoted text

Thanx for your report, this was fixed with the Math::BigInt v1.82 release.
