in reply to CPANPLUS - what if "later" never comes? [SOLVED]

This is just a guess --

Perhaps there's an old version of List::Utils installed that's getting found, but not replaced?

I keep the following shell script for diagnostic purposes:

#!/bin/sh echo 'print map { sprintf( "%20s : %s\n", $_, $INC{$_} ) } sort keys % +INC; print "\n'$1' version : $'$1'::VERSION\n\n"' | perl "-M$1"

    Well, “something vewy skwewy is happening around here,” as my good friend Elmer Fudd would say.

    When I cast-about on the .cpan library on “this” system, with find . -iname \*list\* | grep -i util, I see files like ./lib/perl/5.6.1/auto/List/Util/.packlist ... on a Perl 5.8.8 system.

    On “that” system, which works, there are none.

    Likewise, in the CPAN target-directory I see the files and directories like ./lib/perl/5.6.1/auto/List/Util/.packlist and ./share/perl/5.8/ExtUtils/Liblist. In other words, to my view, neither a 5.6.1 nor a 5.8 subdirectory belong there or are intended to be there.

    So, dimly revealing itself at long last, I believe that I am looking at the true root cause of so many of my problems.

    I see that I have a seriously ... ahhh ... “borked up” :-D ... local-perl directory here! It does not look at all like I thought it should, nor that I intended for it to be. I really don't understand how it got to be that way, nor how to fix it now.

    Oh, I'm sure it must be o conf makepl_args, et al... I'm intending to be running my own CPAN-module installation, local to this particular web-site, set-up as I described in my sister-thread on “XS modules and CGI,” and I now see that I have not done so quite-correctly. There must be some gap in my understanding which didn't really matter ... until now. (Please refer to that thread for more background info about what I am trying to do here.)
