Subject: [BUG] Rakudo should be installable site-wide as root.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 730b
Currently, installation of Rakudo packages (Star and not) seem to install data into the installing user's $HOME directory. The installation process needs to be able to be installed by root into a site-wide directory with the --prefix=/desired/rakudo/dir option (which should have a commonly used default such as /usr/local/rakudo or /opt/rakudo). The installations need to include both zef and panda into the appropriate bin sub-directories of the installation directory. There needs to be a common default module installation location, understood by both panda and zef, and preferably under the rakudo installation directory,so that no hidden directories need be added to a user's path, nor any PERL6LIB definition is needed.
