How do I tell CPAN to use a local lib?

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

I'm struggling to install code on a server with an old Perl and no root access.

I go to install HTML::Template -- I can't because it requires a newer version of ExtUtils::MakeMaker. So I update ExtUtils::MakeMaker in a local modules folder.

So now I need to run the cpan prompt again and tell it where the never version of MakeMaker is. How do I do that?

      PERL5LIB trumps PERLLIB
      -Idirectory trumps PERL5LIB
      -Mblib trumps PERL5LIB/PERLLIB/-I
      PERL5OPT=-Mlib=shecky trumps -Mblib/PERL5LIB/PERLLIB/-I
      and they all trump (sitecustomize processed before they are)

      PERL5LIB TRUMPS PERLLIB, -I trumps PERL5LIB, -Mblib TRUMPS PERL5LIB/PERLLIB/-I, PERL5OPT=-Mlib=shecky trumps -Mblib/PERL5LIB/PERLLIB/-I and they all trump

[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, grep doesn't have an option to go recursively through a directory as far as I know.
[Your Mother]: I work remotely and my pay and benefits are quite nice. :P
[choroba]: Lady_Aleena Perl's grep is not related to directories
[Your Mother]: It does recurse.
[Lady_Aleena]: choroba, I know.
[Your Mother]: -R, -r, --recursive
[1nickt]: Discipulus, Corion, try this: D.A. Golden's blog
[Lady_Aleena]: Your Mother, that's the command line grep, not perl's grep.
[Your Mother]: …how on Earth could Perl’s grep recurse?
[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm not looking to get rich. I'm looking for interesting work, with good continuity of employment, and maintenance of our current lifestyle. (An improvement wouldn't be bad, either, but that's not a requirement ;) )
