Macports should be installing stuff into vendor_perl (that's what  
perl5.lib gets set to).

... but IIRC sitearch is where compiled modules go (ie C-based XS  
modules) and pure-perl stuff goes into site_perl

(so that if you share your perl over NFS, for instance, you can use  
one directory hierarchy for multiple architectures, I think).
