in reply to "use lib" and architecture-specific paths

According to lib:
For each directory in LIST (called $dir here) the lib module also checks to see if a directory called $dir/$archname/auto exists. If so the $dir/$archname directory is assumed to be a corresponding architecture specific directory and is added to @INC in front of $dir.
Does that not actually work under some circumstances? Does it require the auto subdir to exist? I confess to never having developed any arch-specific modules so I haven't tested it.

    Thanks, this was the nudge I needed. I looked at the code and saw that lib had a bug fix at some point in this section. The version 0.5564 doesn't do it properly for locally installed modules. It only works for the site_perl structure where the version number of perl is in the path. This was corrected in 0.5565.
