yeah, that's what I was thinking. Although I could see abstracting it -
something like:

use Config;
use AutoExport qw
        ignore => $Config{installprefix},
        defaulttext => 'use ...; use ....; use ....; use ....;'

This is getting pretty whacked out though. I think a hook compiling PERL5OPT
would be enough for what I need.
