Description Chris Weyl 2006-07-02 16:15:11 EDT
Description of problem:
CPANPLUS has a default directory of '/buildroot/.cpanplus', which causes Bad
Things to happen when apps try to use CPANPLUS without expliticly overriding. 
(e.g. scandeps.pl from perl-Module-ScanDeps)

Would it be possible to tweak Config.pm to alter the default behavior to, say,
$ENV{HOME}/.cpanplus, to make it more in line with the way perl(CPAN) does it? 

File: /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/CPANPLUS/Config.pm
Line: 74

Does changing the line

 'base' => '/builddir/.cpanplus',


 'base' => "$ENV{HOME}/.cpanplus",

seem to work properly?
