Administrating sf's compile-farm

[ #18846 ]
This morning I installed the following modules on Sourceforge's compile-farm (Mac OS X machines, for now):
  • MailToos
  • MIME-Base64
  • File-Temp
  • Storable
  • WeakRef
  • IO-stringy
  • FileHandle-Unget
  • MIME-tools
  • Mail-Mbox-MessageParser

Needless to say, it is perl5.6.0 so I had to live with a few test failures. Also, each module requires to be uploaded via scp to the shell server and from there to cf.sf.net. I also noticed that those must be the world's slowest computers running Mac OS X. It takes anything between 5 and 15 seconds to extract a single tarball.

I tweaked the environment a bit so now PERL5LIB always points to my private tree of installed modules. It feels almost like home now.
