I opened up the package files and checked.
It looks like Tiger's wxPerl lives in /System/Library/Perl/Extras. =20
The libs are in /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.6/darwin-thread-=20
multi-2level/Wx*, and there's an intriguing application called =20
wxPerl.app sitting in /System/Library/Perl/Extras/Applications (what =20
does it do I wonder? an example app maybe from a wxPerl enthusiast =20
working at Apple?)
I believe that means an install in /Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-=20
multi-2level/ (which is what the pkg file does) will supersede it =20
without clobbering it. It may overwrite /usr/bin/wxPerl; I'll back =20
that up just in case.
