I don't have time to give code examples and all that today, but I use
perlfect-search on several virtual host accounts. Basically have a
search.pl in a "shared" area and do hard links (`ln /shared/search.pl`)
to that one copy from inside each vhosts cgi-bin. Each vhost has it's
own conf.pl and data/ directory. The other shared scripts are put into
a single folder which requires a few adjustments in the code.
Hopefully that's clear as mud. :-)
