in reply to perlbrew seems to ignore PERLBREW_ROOT

It seems that this is a problem only with Module::Build.
I just tried to install something else (Text::CSV) and it installed in the /software path just as it should.
Unfortunately, half of CPAN depends on Module::Build and I just can't get it installed

    actually, I guess it's a problem with everyting that uses Module::Build (which Text::CSV does't). I just tried to install Module::Info and that too ends up in my home directory.

      In theory, Module::Build should respect whatever the current Perl tells it about module locations. Do you maybe have a leftover .modulebuildrc somewhere that screws up your configuration? Are there maybe Module::Build-specific environment variables?

        Corion, you're an absolute star - I forgot about .modulebuildrc but it turns out that I do have a very old one and that it indeed points install_base to my home dir. I would never have solved this in a million years, thank you so much!
