The issue is that I cannot download CPAN modules from my console, I have to download the modules separately and install them directly from the directory using the Makefile.PL. I tried installing Local::lib to a nondefault directory using the bootstrap method and the bootstrapping proccess returns this error:
$ perl Makefile.PL --bootstrap=/[Non default directory, not inside my

Writing Makefile for local::lib
I did some time ago (several months ago) install local::lib to my home directory, but to install this version of local::lib. It recently started returning similar errors as the one above whenever I tried to use CPAN to install new modules. To update my local::lib to a new directory I removed any mention of it in my .bashrc $PATH variable. I also downloaded my modules separately and uploaded them to this machine not using wget. If I execute print @INC I get the following result:
$ perl -e 'print "@INC"'
/usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_
+perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5
Similarly, if I echo $PATH I get
The conceptual piece I am missing is how do I direct Perl/CPAN to install local::lib to my non default directory? I think the issue is that the Makefile.PL continues to reference my home directory, but looking inside the Makefile.PL. I have little idea how to change this.
Any insight to help me install local::lib to my non-default directory would be so much appreciated.
