building mod_perl in a temp build dir


I've built apache under a temp dir so I can package and install it,
which I have done. I also have built and installed perl this way.

Now I'm trying to build mod_perl under a temp directory to package.
Unfortunately when running:

mod_perl $ DESTDIR=~/buildroot/ make install

I get the following error:

mkdir /export/home/js: Permission denied at \
/usr/local/perl/lib/5.8.0/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 80

mod_perl is trying to install modules to my perl install. Is there a
flag I can pass to have mod_perl's makefile put the modules into my
~/buildroot/ for packaging? Perhaps there is another solution I haven't
considered - if so, please let me know.

Please note I've seen a couple of postings saying "just su to root". I
know this is a way to force it but I'd like to build this cleanly as I
would any other package.
