Comment (by zzzzz):

 Maybe I'm just accustomed to old ''/boot/common/'' layout, which seems to
 be with haiku since the very beginning.  And those dots in folder names...
 Is it Haiku's hidden directory, like Unix?

 On my Slackware Linux box ''include array @INC'' default value is as



 Manually installed modules (site_perl), for example from cpan shell with
 sudo, go into /usr/local hierarchy. Those pre-packaged should go into
 vendor_perl directories.  By saying that layout is broken I wanted to say
 that in the current HaikuPM layout the 'site_perl' part for manual
 installation falls below /packaged directory, which for me is not logical.
 Please correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't it be somewhere else,
 somewhere outside, at least for manually installed modules (aka
 site_perl), which have nothing in common with packaging?  Or is it my
 misunderstanding of new package management internals?

 On HaikuPM 'site_perl' part of @INC looks like this:

 Anyway, the '''critical issue''' here is the '''inability to build/install
 perl modules'''.  And supposedly the CPAN/Config.pm is on place, still
 default installation place for modules will be below this /packages

 BTW, default per user config in ''$HOME/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm'' is
 typically generated upon first run of ''cpan'' shell.  But this HaikuPM
 cpan is ''/boot/common/bin/cpan''?  Why not
