Hi, I'm on MacOS X and I have a couple of machines here, one Powerbook and one G5 desktop. Perl (apparently reporting the same version for both) has different @INC for each, and this is causing issues for gd-pm581 ( that I have installed via fink (as I can never get it to compile cleanly out of CPAN)
ashtaroth:~ dswan$ perl -e "print (@INC)" /sw/lib/perl5/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level/sw/lib/perl5/5.8.1/sw/l +ib/perl5/sw/lib/perl5/darwin/System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread- +multi-2level/System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thre +ad-multi-2level/Library/Perl/5.8.1/Library/Perl/Network/Library/Perl/ +5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level/Network/Library/Perl/5.8.1/Network/L +ibrary/Perl. ashtaroth:~ dswan$
Embley-m6:/System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level dswan$ + perl -e "print (@INC)" /System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level/System/Library/P +erl/5.8.1/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level/Library/Perl/ +5.8.1/Library/Perl/Network/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2le +vel/Network/Library/Perl/5.8.1/Network/Library/Perl.Embley-m6:/System +/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level dswan$
The GD install has gone into /sw/lib/perl5/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level on both machines.

I know I can push paths into @INC with "use lib" but is there a way I can just get Perl to accept a new @INC permanently without major fiddling?
