:Whatever approach we take, two major problems must be solved to
:accomplish this:
: 1: A perl distribution must be able to be (re)located anywhere and
:    use itself as a starting point to find its additional libraries
:    and modules.
:    The way ActiveState's rpm handles it (by patching the binaries and
:    scripts) works, but defeats the rpm functionality to verify an
:    installation.
: 2: Add-on modules (base-perl and site-perl) must be able to fit
:    themselves into an existing perl installation so they can be
:    distributed in prebuilt form.
:In short, we need componentized, prebuilt distributions.
:Is this being worked on already?

Not that I'm aware; volunteers welcome.
