Where can I find documentation explaining how to install a Perl module?
More precisely, it must deal with installation in the user's home
directory, with the support of several architectures (e.g. the home
directory is under NFS).
I've looked at the perlmodinstall(1) man page, but if I follow this
way, then architecture-dependent files (.so) get installed in a common
directory ($HOME/lib/perl/5.8.8/auto/Math/MPFR in my case).
Note: I don't want to use CPAN since I sometimes need to patch modules
and with CPAN, I need to modify the MyConfig.pm so that it works
everywhere (I recall that my home directory is under NFS, and there
are many different machines on the network).
I currently do:
perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=$HOME/$ARCHTYPE
and in $HOME/$ARCHTYPE, I've created symbolic links to the
architecture-independent directories (e.g. man and share).
