[ID 20000915.006] Incorrect(?) installation location forced byExtUtils::Install
Message ID:

This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.

[Please enter your report here]

   ExtUtils/ contains this comment (and acts accordingly).

        #October 1997: we want to install .pm files into archlib if
        #there are any files in arch. So we depend on having ./blib/arch
        #hardcoded here.

   This is unnecessary, and just leads to a proliferation of identical
files in multiple locations.  I install perl on multiple Unix
architectures and they access it using NFS.  I wish to share the
location of common, architecture-independent files and configure perl
accordingly.  Perl should honour this when installing module files.  It
is quite reasonable to have a large set of architecture-independent
files, with a small set of architecture-dependent support file (such as
*.xs code).  You shouldn't be relocating the architecture independent
parts just because there is a small architcture dependency. 

   This was not done in perl 5.004 and has never been a problem.
