This module tries to make install path resolution as easy as possible.
When you want to install a module, it needs to figure out where to install
The nutshell version of how this works is that default installation locations are determined from ExtUtils::Config, and they may be individually overridden by using the install_path attribute.
An install_base attribute lets you specify an alternative installation root like /home/foo and prefix does something similar in a rather different (and more complicated) way.
destdir lets you specify a temporary installation directory like /tmp/install in case you want to create bundled-up installable packages.
