Dear Lazyweb,

I wondered if anyone here used Perlbrew, and might be able to save me
having to go digging into the bowels of a whole lot of the CPAN
installation stack to work out why all my modules are absolutely
convinced they should be installing any scripts to `/usr/local/bin`
rather than, say, my selected Perl's bin under the Perlbrew root.

Everything else seems to be working: modules install to the right
places, and everything works, except that HTML::TreeBuilder (and, I
think, a pile of other modules) want to use the wrong location.  (The
sitebin dir is right, vendorbin is empty, and the core bits are

Hints?  I know that module uses Module::Build, so I wonder if it is
something I (or Perlbrew) am missing?
