Here's a suggestion.  Use /etc/perl-site or /var/lib/perl-site (I
don't know which would be more appropriate) as the directory compiled
into perl, and tell the adminstrator to create a symlink from there to
where ever he/she wants the local stuff to go.  BTW, I will have a
similar situation to deal with when I get around to packaging scotty.
