: Is this really that common?  I've seen at least two more methods, one using
: --with-perl=/directory/where/perl/binary/is/in .
: What about hardwiring PATH to "/{,usr,LOCALBASE,X11BASE}/{,s}bin"?

Definitely a possibility.  At the current time, PATH places LOCALBASE/bin
and X11BASE/bin at the *end* of the path; that probably should be change to
the *beginning*.  I'll add that to proposal 6 (general cleanup), instead.
