the install-time prefix is being determined by coldsync's build process.

huh? that's not what i'm talking about at all.
coldsync forces the perl modules into /usr/local/lib/site_perl (if you run
the Makefile.PL by hand they go in /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl). perl
modules on my systems all go in /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl. a standard
Makefile.PL puts them in the right place. Coldsync does not.
i just stripped out all the code you put in place to override the default
MakeMaker makefile. Makefile.PL now looks like:
# $Id: Makefile.PL,v 1.7 2000/08/08 15:47:46 arensb Exp $
'NAME' => 'ColdSync',
'VERSION_FROM' => 'ColdSync.pm', # finds $VERSION
'AUTHOR' => 'Andrew Arensburger <firstname.lastname@example.org>',
'ABSTRACT' => 'Module for writing ColdSync conduits',
the modules now get installed into the proper location
(/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl). this would seem to indicate that the problem
is in your overriden sections.

i will pull your higher memory functions.
