If you build a custom Perl for IC, it's best to build it so that it 
installs in a completely separate location (eg /usr/local/icperl) rather 
than overwriting the system packages (shudder) or even the default 
/usr/local/(bin,share,lib,etc) locations.

That way, your system Perl can be maintained by whatever package manager 
your distro provides, and your IC Perl build can be maintained via CPAN.

We use two different Debian releases here (old and ancient <g>);  IIRC 
I've seen reports of RedHat 7.mumble through EL (and source-rebuild 
derivatives), Ubuntu, Gentoo, Slackware, and even one or two nuts 
running IC on Fedora Core.  ;)
