  • This comes up frequently on perl on macosx mailing list []. Apple uses perl in some of their instal/update scripts and on occasion, it has been significant that they expect a specific version to be in that location. You're much better off using your own location.

    As your mission is to make things more unixy, you'll probably want to check out fink [] and possibly finkcommander [] as well.

  • The first thing I do with a new machine (Mac OS X or otherwise) is set up /opt/perl to have a few builds of Perl (5.6.1 and 5.8.0).

    I think I'll be refreshing /opt shortly to not build; it caused some brief problems recently when I updated /usr/bin/perl. (I also want to have a couple of versions with PerlIO and 64-bit int support for testing.)
