Message ID:
   Seems to me like there should be an installsitescript variable.

   I agree that for user-built perl, it should be /usr/local/bin, not 
/usr/bin.  The last hints file I edited had this fixed, or so was the 
intent.  I think that was in a 5.7-dev version, though.  Been a while.

   I believe that for a system-built perl, installBLAH should be 
/usr/blah and installsiteBLAH should be /usr/local/blah.  I don't think 
you can have installbin be a different place than where perl itself 
lives without tweaking after the fact, and I don't think 
that's what you're supposed to do here.  I'm not an expert; never was a 
fan of perl's build setup.  I thought that was the point of 
installsitebin, as opposed to installbin.
