in reply to What to tell Module::Build, and where?

I'm running pretty much the same setup as you, and in all the years of using CPAN and 'apt-get', they've never "interfered" with each other. I will admit that I was initially apprehensive about it as well.

With regard to your .modulebuildrc - I don't know if this is sufficient to fix your problem, but that's not how 'install_path' works; it actually takes 2 arguments, the section to install and a location to install that section (e.g., "install_path lib /home/ken/lib/perl5".) Perhaps you meant '--install_base' - which does take a single argument.

    Well, there might be something to all those years, and you might be better than me to actually rtfm...

    I tried to set .modulebuildrc once with install_path lib /home/kai/perl5lib and once with install_base /home/kai/perl5lib but Module::Build still wasn't impressed.

    I've read the perldoc on Module::Build, but it's a litle vague on the actual syntax of the .modulebuildrc, so I've tried all the combinations both with and without leading whitespace, but without any noticeable effect.
