Is there a mechanism to bypass these modifications? I actually like
perllocal.pod because it gives me a (simple) record of the modules that
I installed myself. Something like 'pkg_info | grep p5' tells me what I
want for modules installed by pkgsrc, but I have many modules that I
installed directly....
