Life with CPAN
To fix this problem, update the makepl_arg to set INSTALLSITEMAN1DIR and INSTALLSITEMAN3DIR manually.
$ grep makepl_arg /System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/CPAN/Config.pm
‘makepl_arg’ => q[INSTALLSITEMAN1DIR=/usr/share/man/man1 ↵
Wow – this would have been good to know 2 days ago,
I have carefully cleaned out /man and put things where they belong.
