Thanks for listening to an SVK newbie...

I installed my CPAN bundle. Now when I make
SVK, I get the following...

Sorry, we have to rerun the configuration dialog for CPAN.pm due to
the following indispensable but missing parameters:

mbuild_arg, mbuild_install_arg, mbuild_install_build_command,

The next questions deal with Module::Build support.

A Build.PL is run by perl in a separate process. Likewise we run
'./Build' and './Build install' in separate processes. If you have any
parameters you want to pass to the calls, please specify them here.

Parameters for the 'perl Build.PL' command?
Typical frequently used settings:

    --install_base /home/xxx             # different installation

Do I give it the Perl install base, as the parameter name implies,
or my home dir, as the parameter value implies?
