szabgab has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am trying to install Module::Build while using local::lib. Unfortunately it wants to install into /usr/bin and not in my private ~/perl5/bin directory Why and how can it be fixed?

    Why and how can it be fixed?

    The local lib documentation shows you the magic

    # Just print out useful shell commands $ perl -Mlocal::lib export PERL_MB_OPT='--install_base /home/username/perl5' export PERL_MM_OPT='INSTALL_BASE=/home/username/perl5' export PERL5LIB='/home/username/perl5/lib/perl5/i386-linux:/home/use +rname/perl5/lib/perl5' export PATH="/home/username/perl5/bin:$PATH"
    Try this direct approach instead. Also try running Build.PL... manually
      Oh, and is turns out I was not even using local::lib, that's why I did not have the above already configured.
