The idea is that make install is not supposed to touch my production
config in any way. I don't want it to generously add directories without
me knowing.

It was easy to tell it to back off earlier (even easier in v2 - just mv
source/raddb/ out of the way), but now for some reason the old v3-style
mechanism doesn't work any more.

I guess I could create the mods-config/ dir in my production config dir
and it would make the symptom go away.

I still found it worth reporting that some messing-around with the
config dir is going on/attempted even when the source dir is told not to
do that.

I think I udnerstand from the earlier post that the "make install"
target of rlm_perl wants to "do something" in raddb/mods-config/ on its
own; and bails out when it can't.

It's not nice if one module makes assumptions about a part of the
directory structure it doesn't control. Nothing stops me from deploying
a raddb with the configs lying in
"raddb/modules-configuration-information/ and it would be very undue if
the stock build process bails out on failure then during a subsequent
