Description Enrico Scholz 2003-05-29 08:42:58 EDT
Description of problem:

$ echo 'use ExtUtils::MakeMaker; WriteMakefile();' >Makefile.PL
$ perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/usr
$ cat Makefile | grep DESTDIR

when calling 'make install DESTDIR=/tmp/foobar', files will be installed into

| /tmp/foobar/tmp/foobar/usr/perl...

but not into

| /tmp/foobar/usr/perl

as expected.
