PPM generated doc contains wrong link

I noticed that when install a package via PPM(I am using ppm4), it automatically generates HTML document for the package. When I try to read the doc, it is formated correctly, but all the links on the page that suppose to point to a method or another module are linked to some absolute path of a temp-install directory:

For example, I installed the "Net::DNS" package. If I take a look at the "Net::DNS" html doc generated by PPM, the page looks ok. But if we roll down the page to ALSO SEE section, the links are pointing to something like:


while the real html file is located in


Is this a bug or the install package is not composed correctly?

thank you

This looks like a package problem -- I don't see it happening with other modules, and they all go through the same processing, to the best of my knowledge. Thanks for reporting it, though!
