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.
