I make a symlink from /usr/pkg/lib/perl5/site_perl to
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl, so locally-installed (non-pkgsrc) perl
modules don't completely disappear when I rm -rf /usr/pkg.  It might be
nice if Perl just knew to look in /usr/local instead of /usr/pkg for the
"site_perl" directory.  (Substitute PREFIX or LOCALBASE or whatever for
/usr/pkg and /usr/local.)
