in reply to cpan installing modules outside of the @INC path

Check your makepl_arg config from cpan shell, macrobat.
$ cpan cpan>o conf makepl_arg
If it contains something, that's why.

Open source softwares? Share and enjoy. Make profit from them if you can. Yet, share and enjoy!

    Alas, that key is empty.

    Still, if I install from the cpan shell, it goes somewhere outside my @INC path. If I then go into the ~/.cpan/build/Some-Module directory and do a

    perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
    --it goes to the right place.
      Just where does cpan install the module?

        It installs things into /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/, but @INC is this:

        /opt/at/perl5lib /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i686-linux-thread-multi /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .
