[Bioperl-l] a thought on Bio::Root::Build

I've got it so this 'core behavior' results only if mbuildpl_arg or 
makepl_arg are not already set via MyConfig-- MyConfig
always overrides everything. But still, maybe this is too much fiddling.

Sendu- Let me go back to the drawing board, taking Chris's 
comments into closer account. 

thanks guys -

  Hey Mark,

  I'm not sure I understand this, so forgive me if I'm way off here...

  Does this mean that, if an older version of a core module is in a location other than the MyConfig-specified location, the new version of that module will be installed in the same place as the older version?

  Foo::Core 1.0 is is /usr/local/lib
  user wants to install BioPerl in /home/mylib
  BioPerl requires Foo::Core 1.4

  then Foo::Core 1.4 will be installed in /usr/local/lib, right?

  If that's so, wouldn't that be problematic for users who don't have write perms to places like /usr/local/lib?
