in reply to Personal library with CPAN

do the proposed solutions work for XS stuff like Tk or DBD::mysql?

i.e.: can i do this, and then simply copy the CPAN directoy between compatible (x86 with same distro) machines without having to re-install all them modules everywhere?

    Not necessarily. Check that this value is the same:
    "perl -V:archname"
    For example, on my current machine, the value is: i386-freebsd-64int However, another FreeBSD box running the same OS version might not be 64 bit, so the answer would be:
