in thread modifying @INC other than use lib?

Editing your Config.pm can be your only option sometimes; especially when relocating your Perl binary/library tree, and switching between using nmake or dmake in a Windows environment.

      That's funny; I relocate my Perl port niPerl without recompiling. I use a VBScript to do the relocation that edits Config.pm during the MSI installation process. I've had no complaints yet, seems to work too. I believe ActiveState do the same sort of thing.

        ActivePerl uses a script reloc_perl to do this which in turn uses a module ActiveState::RelocateTree which documentation says:

        Perl can't just be copied into a new location without relocating some files. In Windows this is less of a problem because the executable knows its actual location and uses that to find its library tree. On Unix, the location of the libraries must be encoded within the perl binary.
