Oh right.  I should have known that.  Well in a non-perl port, I guess I
could use perl -V system calls to get it in a non-hardcoded way since I
don't want to update a port for a new perl release.

perl -V:sitelib

perl -V:sitearch

Why is it so little is in sitelib (I have one file RRDp.pm) and so much is
in sitearch?
