in reply to Perl install ignores -Dprefix

The proper way to configure Perl is not to call ./configure.gnu but ./Configure:

/bin/sh ./Configure -de -Dprefix=/app/perl -Dusethreads -Duse64bitall +-Dcc=/app/sfw/gcc

    Thanks, I did this and still everything being dumped into /app. Any suggestions, there's nothing in makefile with /app/perl
      Is /app/perl a directory? I usually unpack a perl tarball then rename the directory to the perl version number that I just unpacked as the installation prefix. For example:
      mv /opt/perl444-27-O1-5.20.0-RC1 /opt
      perl444 stands for perl using gcc-4.4.4; the 27 represents the OS which is the 2.6.27 kernel; O1((that's capital O followed by 1) stands for the optimization flag that I will use; lastly, the version number which I'm using. Next, you probably should set the path for your compiler and its library:
      export CC=/opt/444/bin/gcc export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
      Then change directory:
      cd /opt/perl444-27-O1-5.20.0-RC1
      Now, following Corion's advice:
      ./Configure -Dcc=/opt/444/bin/gcc -Dprefix=/opt/perl444-27-O0-5.20.0-R +C1 -DDEBUGGING
      Hit Enter and it starts the configuration.
      do  make clean or start with fresh directory (delete everything, unpack tarball, tar -zxvf perl...tar.gz )
