in reply to Perl6 - Module::Build

Anything will work, as long as it makes installing a non-system-wide copy very, very easy. Without the need of specifying a prefix. In fact, perhaps homedir installation (~/.perl6/lib/...) should be made default, and whatever directory is used for that should be in @*INC by default too.

    I second the home dir installation idea.  Maybe not default, but definitely have an easy syntax to do home dir installations; something like perl Makefile.PL install_dir   (replace Makefile.PL with whatever makes sense (my brain is a little fried right now from 12+ hours of trying to shoehorn XS modules into a poorly configured machine); hopefully you get the idea).

    Update:  I just saw this quote in The St. Larry Wall Shrine, the irony was too much to pass up...

    "What is the sound of Perl? Is it not the sound of a wall that people have stopped banging their heads against?"
