This also doesn't have anything to do with local::lib.  Look for 'notest' in
the CPAN.pm docs.

(This is a potentially bad idea for all the same reasons 'force' is.)

local::lib has nothing to do with how CPAN.pm behaves.  Any questions you have
about "how can I do X while using CPAN.pm" should be looked up in the CPAN.pm

local::lib sets environment variables that Module::Build and
ExtUtils::MakeMaker use to determine what directory they should go into, and
for perl to add extra paths to @INC, and corresponding variables for both
inside a Perl process that you use it in.  That's all.  You seem to have the
impression that it touches much more than it actually does, and I think you'll
be less confused and have an easier time answering your own questions if you
understand local::lib's scope.
