I keep privately-installed things in /home/kake/local/ so I have for example:
kake at the:~$ ls /home/kake/local/share/perl/5.6.1/
Array/ Class/ HTTP/ LWP.pm Regexp/ Test/ Tree/ auto/
Bundle/ File/ Hook/ Local/ Search/ Text/ URI/ lwpcook.pod
CGI/ HTML/ LWP/ Net/ Sub/ Tie/ WWW/
But this is just personal choice. What do other people on this list use?
I would generally only keep actual CGI programs (and maybe their data
files, depending on server setup) in the cgi-bin directory.
