write permissions installing XML-SAX-Expat-0.38 locally

I'm trying to install XML-SAX-Expat-0.38 into a local area (non-
standard - no root permission), but I'm getting a permissions
problem.  I've looked at the FAQ and other resources.  I've set the
PREFIX and LIB values at the command line.  I've tried editing the
Makefile.PL to include a "use lib" line, but I'm still getting a
permission problem when I execute make install.

It's trying to write to /dsw/perl-5.8.7/lib/site_perl/5.8.7/XML/SAX/

Quoted text here. Click to load it
executing the following 4 commands:
perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/bell/bin/perl/Modules/XML-SAX-Expat-0.38
LIB=/home/bell/bin/perl/Modules/XML-SAX-Expat-0.38 (some warnings
about Clock skew, but no obvious errors)
make test
make install

During make test is actually says "All tests successful."
During make install I get the following warning:

Cannot write to /dsw/perl-5.8.7/lib/site_perl/5.8.7/XML/SAX/
ParserDetails.ini: Permission denied at /dsw/perl-5.8.7/lib/site_perl/
5.8.7/XML/SAX.pm line 191.
make: *** [install_sax_expat] Error 13

I've learned that I don't need to run "make install" if I'm using it
locally, so that solves that problem, but now I have another one of
trying to get it to be used.  I will post that question under the
appropriate (different) title.
