in reply to Compiling Perl with correct values in @INC

By default, the perl build configuration does an extended question-and-answer session during the configuration. Default answers are provided and are sane for most questions. If you give an incorrect answer, it's best to start over. You get a chance to edit the configuration before it's written into the Makefile.

Since some default answers may be drawn from the current perl installation, pay close attention to the LIBDIR and 'additional @ISA' questions. The -d option to configure automatically picks most of the defaults, so don't try that with a broken current perl.

It would be advisable to set PERL5LIBS before building.
