I was going to point out that when we had a vanilla @INC was when we had problems with perl-core modules (as they now are) overwriting core modules, which really broke things when unmerged...but that was before we were forcing everything to install into vendor as well...so yeah, that might just work :) But then it begs the question, why not just go with vanilla at that point? (I know there has to be an argument against this, I just can't remember what it might be.) -- -----o()o---------------------------------------------- Michael Cummings | #gentoo-dev, #gentoo-perl Gentoo Perl Dev | on irc.freenode.net Gentoo/SPARC Gentoo/AMD64 GPG: 0543 6FA3 5F82 3A76 3BF7 8323 AB5C ED4E 9E7F 4E2E -----o()o---------------------------------------------- Hi, I'm a .signature virus!
