Umm...Not exactly, though it makes life much easier.

You must build your makefile to work in your home dir. Something like:

PREFIX=~/usr/local \
INSTALLPRIVLIB=~/usr/local/lib/perl5 \
INSTALLSCRIPT=~/usr/local/bin \
INSTALLSITELIB=~/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl \
INSTALLBIN=~/usr/local/bin \
INSTALLMAN1DIR=~/usr/local/lib/perl5/man \

Put this in a file, say 'foo.cfg', and use it for the MakeFile.PL

$ perl MakeFile.PL `cat foo.cfg`

Then, forget ./config. Just run

make test (some may fail)
make install

And, don't forget to install Bundle::Interchange, which will need the
same config data as you put into 'foo.cfg'.
