Jeez, give them a little credit would you? Read more about the nastiness of PREFIX, and take a breather before getting so annoyed next time :-)

    Thanks for the pointer; I see now why PREFIX is a headache to implement. But it is also a headache for us happy users of PREFIX whenever we find a module that can't be installed in the usual way. The last time I had that problem I decided that it was less of a headache to compile and install my own perl (using the "prefix" option to Configure) and then install everything to my new "system" directories, rather than to figure out how to ensure that Module::Build- and ExtUtils::MakeMaker-based distributions get installed in the same place...
