I put my OSX Perl in /opt/perl/snap (for "snapshot") with the Configure
line of:

  ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Uversiononly -Dprefix=/opt/perl/snap -Dlocincpth=/sw/include -Dloclibpth=/sw/lib -Dperladmin=merlyn at stonehenge.com

Note that I have fink installed, so I need to include the two /sw dirs as well.
