I built perl 5.6.2 like this:
$ sh Configure -Dprefix=blahblah -de
and installed it, and lo and behold, it works!
$ perl-5.6.2/bin/perl -v
This is perl, v5.6.2 built for i686-linux
it can even find the CPAN module:
$ perl-5.6.2/bin/perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan shell -- ...
but if I try to install a module ...

I don't do .INI, .BAT, or .SYS files. I don't assign apps to files.
I don't configure peripherals or networks before using them. I have
a computer to do all that. I have a Macintosh, not a hobby.
