in reply to Building module by hand

I usually do

prompt> perl Makefile.PL && make test //review output and check for 100% pass prompt> su //login as root rootprompt>make install && exit prompt>

well-behaved modules need little more than this

Note the 'CPAN' shell 'clean' does exactly the same as 'make clean', which is delete local temp files (Makefile gets renamed). No 'uninstall'ing gets done. Uninstall support in Perl modules is patchy at best.
