in reply to Which takes priority site\lib or lib?

It is a common and stupid bug with dual-lived modules , if you look around, I'll bet you'll find more

2006 Bug #25163 for Test-Simple: Set INSTALLDIRS = perl for 5.6.2

2010 Bug #57201 for CPANPLUS: installdirs should be site when > perl 5.11

If you're sticking with perl $] >= 5.009005 && $] <= 5.011000 you can isolate yourself from these Makefile.PL oversights with

perl Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=perl

or, even though no core modules use it, perl Build.PL installdirs=core

    That seems to work. Many thanks for the work around.
