creating a relocatable perl?

perl5ever has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm interested in creating a "relocatable" perl binary distribution. The idea is that I would be able to do this:
$ cd /some/random/directory $ tar zxf relocatable-perl.tgz (perhaps some configuration commands go here)
Then running /some/random/directory/bin/perl (and other programs in the bin directory) would work as if perl was built from source using:
./Configure ... -Dprefix=/some/random/directory

Is this possible? Is something close to this possible? What are the issues/obstacles?
