@gnashley i wish you very fast recoverage from illness. you dont have to answer instantly. Just take your time. For me in this specific build i ran the script as root , and rc.zm script was looking some files in @INC as you can see and after i used that line, i didnt have to modify the script that much, and daemon started correctly, and every file belonged where it should have been after installation, so yes it might be the case that it works only when the script is ran as root. I ran as root because in JAIL mode i got some permission denied errors when in root everything went smoothly.
if i understood correctly INSTALLDIRS=vendor means install perl modules in vendor installation dir? Is that correct?
