Oops, I failed completely in what I wanted to get across.
My dad frequently tells me when I say something, that just because I know
what I'm talking about doesn't mean anyone else does! :)

No what I meant was like this:

For example.

$ perl -e 'require nobies_home.pl;'    
Can't locate nobies_homepl in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/local/libdata/perl5/site_perl /usr/libdata/perl5/site_perl
/usr/local/libdata/perl5/i386-openbsd/5.16.3 /usr/libdata/perl5
/usr/local/libdata/perl5 .) at -e line 1.

These are OK. No problem.

But login.pl is disastrous.

$ locate login.pl


I can put all of the LedgerSMB:: stuff into regular perl @INC locations,
but the *.pl stuff can't go there.
