[vox-tech] Perl Question - Laying out modules


I'm using h2xs to build my package skeletons.  I'm putting my files in:
~/lib/perl/src.  All my package are in the application space MyApp.  So for
example if I do:

cd ~/lib/perl
h2xs -A -X -n MyApp::Module1

So, I end up having a .pm file in:

I don't want to:
perl Makefile.PL
make install
everytime I edit one, because they're constantly changing because I'm still
writing them.  And I don't want to install them (yet).

Instead I just want them in my @INC.

So what I've been doing is:
export PERL5LIB=~/lib/perl/MyApp
ln -s ~/lib/perl/src/MyApp/*/*.pm .

Is there a better way to do this?  Maybe there is a proper method for using
packages that are in development
