Built fine for me on two machines (and if you read the PKGBUILD you'll see the source is not an array). And please paste error messages in English:

PKGBUILD is broken....

I don't use cpan, so I don't know how it manages to override the INSTALLDIRS=vendor rule, but presumably there is some way to configure that functionality.

Is it expected that I run `cpan` before installing this package? The reason it's installing stuff to ~/.cpan is because it's the default place when `cpan` script runs. I tried running `sudo cpan` and copy the settings to the user but I it couldn't write to the "/usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/".

@johnyponny then you are doing something with Perl's path, because if you look at the PKGBUILD, it installs to vendor_perl, which should be /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/...

Seems like Synthead is right, I got a interactive prompt that loaded automatically and installed stuff in ~/.cpan

jasonwryan commented on 2014-09-03 22:09

No, it installs to `/usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/` as per the PKGBUILD...

This package installs files to the user's home directory!
For this to build correctly, it is necessary to sanitize the environment.
Please see

This package contains files that conflict with files in perl-class-accessor:

Simplified and cleaned up PKGBUILD:
