This is really directed straight at Matt, but I figure the answer being 
in a searchable archive is a good idea.

Is local::lib supposed to be able to bootstrap itself in to ~/perl5? 
The examples have a prompt of '%', which suggests they're supposed to be 
run as a regular user, rather than root.  But the "perl Makefile.PL 
--bootstrap" fails when it can't install some dependencies (Test::... 
IIRC) in to the normal system library directories.
