Download GP/Pari from this site and build it. After the build, you'll
get your build directory. :-)
Since this is a perl mailing list, I assume that you are trying to
install Math::Pari. With the help of Net::FTP, Math::Pari can download
and build GP/Pari for you. Actually, it will download pari source in
active ftp mode. If you're behind a firewall you may want to download in
passive ftp mode. You can do this by setting the environment variable
"FTP_PASSIVE" to a non-zero value (e.g. "export FTP_PASSIVE=1" in bash).
See the documentation of Net::FTP for more information.
