Maybe I'm missing the point of local::lib, but the same goal can be
accomplished by installing a copy of perl in a non-system directory
with the PREFIX option:

sh Configure -Dprefix=$HOME/perl

This has the added benefit of not needing the local::lib module
dependency, making the program portable across any Perl installation
that has the required modules installed.
