I'm trying to install, among other perl packages, the dev-perl/YAML-Tiny-1.41, but I get th following error:


* Using ExtUtils::MakeMaker
* perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/usr INSTALLDIRS=vendor INSTALLMAN3DIR=none DESTDIR=/var/tmp/portage/dev-perl/YAML-Tiny-1.41/image/
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Only one of PREFIX or INSTALL_BASE can be given. Not both.
* ERROR: dev-perl/YAML-Tiny-1.41 failed:
* Unable to build! (are you using USE="build"?)
*
* Call stack:
* ebuild.sh, line 54: Called src_configure
* environment, line 2710: Called perl-module_src_configure
* environment, line 2363: Called perl-module_src_prep
* environment, line 2421: Called die
* The specific snippet of code:
* perl Makefile.PL "$@" <<< "${pm_echovar}" || die "Unable to build! (are you using USE=\"build\"?)";
*
* If you need support, post the output of 'emerge --info =dev-perl/YAML-Tiny-1.41',
* the complete build log and the output of 'emerge -pqv =dev-perl/YAML-Tiny-1.41'.
* The complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/dev-perl/YAML-Tiny-1.41/temp/build.log'.
* The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/tmp/portage/dev-perl/YAML-Tiny-1.41/temp/environment'.
* S: '/var/tmp/portage/dev-perl/YAML-Tiny-1.41/work/YAML-Tiny-1.41'



I believe the error comes mainly from the fact about the "Only one of PREFIX or INSTALL_BASE can be given. Not both." message than the USE flag. Any ideas about how to solve it?




************************ (update)
Problem:

I found out the reason why it was happening. I installed the local::lib module and I was using some libraries at user scope for cpan. So, as for adding
Code:
eval $(perl -I$HOME/.perl/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib=$HOME/.perl)
to ~/.bashrc, it generated now enviroment codes for the user and, for instance, it generated the
Code:
export PERL_MM_OPT="INSTALL_BASE=/home/rafael/.perl"
entry. (rafael is my username, for instance.)

The problem is that I change to super user environment with
Code:
su
only and as a consequence, I inherit all my current user environment variables, including the PERL_MM_OPT.

Solution:

Change to super user with
Code:
su -
instead of only
Code:
su
.

Thanks as well!

This is the second time I've been here, I apparently keep forgetting the solution.
