I'll put that on the list of hates.  Right next to "choose a volume on 
which to install this software" ... "you idiot, you have to install it 
on the primary volume, so I'll ask you to choose again and you better 
get it right this time!"


Thus the desire to install linux and run os x virtualized on top of 
that.  i.e. "As little interaction with the mac as possible."  The 
internets are telling me that's a no-go though.

Ditto for "cross-compiling perl+modules".  Ugh.  Cross-compiling is old 
hat (plus it's all x86 anyway so we're really only talking about 
"cross-linking") and perl is cross platform+interpreted, so "in theory" 
this should be a piece of cake, right?
