in reply to How to create relocatable perl 5.20.1 ?

Do you actually need a relocatable perl, or do you simply want to install Perl somewhere other than the default?

On a Linux box (which you appear to be using), the latter is trivial using perlbrew, or even manually.

curl -L +ar.gz | tar xz cd perl-5.20.1 . Configure -des -Dusethreads -Dprefix="$HOME/perl" make make test make install
