7.9.1. Installation of Perl

Prepare Perl for compilation:

sh Configure -des                                        \
             -Dprefix=/usr                               \
             -Dvendorprefix=/usr                         \
             -Duseshrplib                                \
             -Dprivlib=/usr/lib/perl5/5.38/core_perl     \
             -Darchlib=/usr/lib/perl5/5.38/core_perl     \
             -Dsitelib=/usr/lib/perl5/5.38/site_perl     \
             -Dsitearch=/usr/lib/perl5/5.38/site_perl    \
             -Dvendorlib=/usr/lib/perl5/5.38/vendor_perl \
