Steven's FindBin::libs [1] (which I installed this morning) is a similar
tool for handling situations like this. I think you would need to synch up the 
names of your library locations though:


Which could be used by putting this in your script:

    use FindBin::libs;

I like the config idea, but then you have the problem of which config file
to use in different environments no?

I like it.
