in reply to copy perl and some modules into an offline OS

Ok so I'm currently installing perl like this:

./Configure -des -Dprefix=/usr/jails/basejail/myjail/usr/bin

My question is where do I copy starman from? In addition to the directory I need to also copy other dependencies right? So what folder should I copy? Where is the default cpan module directory?

    You're doing things backwards

    use a root prefix, like /inside

    build all your stuff relative to /inside, all the software

    then make a jail ANYWHERE

    then copy /inside into jail

    inside the jail treat /inside as root

    or if you want /usr/bin .. instead of /inside/usr/bin

    start copying /usr/bin ... into your jail

    then go to jail, switch to jail, chroot to your jail ,

    then install perl as normal into whatever place inside the jail, using absolute jail paths

    see links for chroot setup
