Tech Tip: Speed up building perl 5 by not installing the man pages

2015-12-03: Tech Tip: Speed up building perl 5 by not installing the man pages

When building perl 5 from source, one can speed up the "make" and "make install" stages significantly by not installing the man pages. To do so, pass the options “-Dman1dir=none -Dman3dir=none” to “sh Configure”.

Cheers, and happy upcoming Chanukkah, and happy Christmas and/or Yulth or whatever winter holiday you celebrate.
