Awww, shite, that means I have a presentation to write between now and

Can we include a section on how setting up CPAN with:

    'makepl_arg' => q[PREFIX=~/]

(on Linux) promptly breaks when you try and install a Module::Build
module, and thereby drives one slightly bonkers?

The above gave me a nice setup where everything went into:

and $HOME/share/perl/5.8.7 

but the best I seem to be able to do with Module::Build is:

and $HOME/lib/i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi/auto/

Which is slightly frustrating.
