Subject: Module::Build moans about a PREFIX when installed via CPAN
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 378b
Hi there, On a new Perl installation, installed in my home directory, I just couldn't get Module::Build installed via the CPAN that ships with 5.8.6, nor the head CPANPLUS (well, close, anyway - 0.50_02). Installing via CPAN made it moan about PREFIX being set; installing via cpanp got into a bad state very quickly. I've attached the xterm log so you can see what happened.

Hi Sam, A few issues here. One is that the '~' characters in the commands you fed the Makefile.PL aren't being expanded, which is a bug in Module::Build (or maybe a design flaw in MakeMaker 10 years ago, since it messes with people's heads about what shell expansion does & doesn't do...). I'll see what I can do about that. Another issue is that PREFIX simply isn't supported in M::B, at least not right now. This may get resolved soon (see https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=8759). I think all the other stuff in your shell transcript is caused by these two issues. -Ken

PREFIX is now supported in the CVS version. This ticket should be resolved.
