To install a module...
PPM here. At lease on my windows box.
When I'm on Linux I use make, but it always makes the modules to some ./blib directory. How do I get make to build where I want?
You want to run 'make install' as well.
Read the man pages for MakeMaker (man ExtUtils::MakeMaker) for other options. Also, depending on your OS flavor, there may be some standards for where you should install modules to.
For example, on debian systems you'll want to use:
perl Makefile.PL 'INSTALLDIRS=vendor'
perl Makefile.PL 'INSTALLDIRS=site'
