jameslose has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm looking for advice on how to bundle a perl distribution with a software product that depends on it. Specifically I need to create a 5.8.x perl distribution that will be installed as an integral part of a non-commercial software product that will run on Solaris 2.8/9/10 SPARC systems. I realize that recent versions of Solaris include perl by default, but I don't want my software product to depend on the Solaris package. If anyone has experience with this sort of thing, I would be grateful to hear from you.
