Should it be run as root?

Should I cd into the base directory of the LS files first?

Probably best to run it as root since it means installing the dependencies.

Also it is best to avoid "make install" for 1.3, since it means running make install on every minor upgrade.  In trunk (1.4), make install is supported for some types of installations.

But the INSTALL file which comes with this 1.3 file says to run:

 $ perl Makefile.PL                                                                                                                                   
 $ make install

So what do you mean - probably best not to run "make install"?
