I'm setting up a new installation of Debian 4.0 at home and though I'd
try to install BioPerl as a normal user rather than root. So in CPAN
options I set the --install_base to /home/username/perl and set PERL5LIB
to point to the same place.
Now, when I run "perl Build.PL" on the HEAD of BioPerl as a non root
user and ask to install all optional modules, it tries to install them
through CPAN - however it seems to fail because some dependencies don't
seem to want to install in a user directory.
Has anyone else found this or might I be doing something wrong?
