One of these oddities had to do with the building of modules with custom destinations, that is a destination specified on the command line with the
LIB at the
perl Makefile.PL step of compilation - This oddity manifest itself in the installation of supporting manual pages.
I would have expected that with such a configuration, the manual pages would have been installed in a directory under
PREFIX - However, as I moved onto the final stage of the installation, I was surprised to find
make trying to install these files to the system perl directory tree, resulting in a stream of permission-related error messages.
I'm sure I'll have more oddities to post as I continue revisiting this old friend
