first off- thanks for writing cool cli interface for the ipod.  looks like exactly what I need.

only problem is that ubuntu seems to have an older version in their repositories and I just bought a new ipod nano.  I've screwed up systems in the past by installing things in with the base OS- so I try to tuck all my compiled and personal add on packages in a /usr1 tree.  Tried that with the gnupod and I get the following complaint from make

-> use 'make install' to install GNUpod
-> use 'info GNUpod' to read the documentation after you installed GNUpod
-> use 'make uninstall' to remove GNUpod from /usr1/apps/gnupod/gnupod-0.99.6.d
/bin/bash ./mkinstalldirs /usr1/apps/gnupod/gnupod-0.99.6.d/bin
/bin/bash ./mkinstalldirs /usr1/apps/gnupod/gnupod-0.99.6.d/share/man/man1

make: *** [install] Error 13

because it's my  `system` user account instead of root- it's complaining.  It's late enough now that I'll probably look at it in detail on another day. 

any tips on why it needs to create /etc/perl/GNUpod in the /etc/perl directory instead of the --prefix= path and any quick tips on working around this are appreciated
