Almost *always* lib/perl5/5.8.7 is what is installed from the Perl
distribution itself. site_perl is used for add-on modules that are
not part of the Perl distribution. If it doesn't follow that scheme
it is because 1)the module you installed is broken, or 2) the
module you installed is replacing an original distribution module.
