such I mess is not so unusual, I have it in linux too because several
nonfree tools came with their own perl in nonstandard places. However, my
standard perl does not see their files. The key point is the setting of
PERL5LIB, it points to directories with my private additions, not to those
nonstandard versions. It may happen that your incomplete installation sees
files from another version which may cause problems. I would suggest to
start with verification of environment settings, especially the variables
related to perl.
