Autobuild fails during the installation cause if we ask perl for the vendor 
lib direcotry it tells us to use e.g. /usr/share/perl5/vendor_lib

but we can't install to that directory as a user in autobuild.

We could fix it if we change autobuild to use:

./configure --bundled-libraries=NONE --abi-check --enable-debug -C --
prefix=/m/asn/a/b989179/prefix/samba-libs --with-perl-

The other possibility is to change the default back to $prefix/share/perl5. 
This would fix autobuild but you can be sure that it will not work on a unix 
system. Perl will not check the where we install it.
