> Try setting the environmental variable PERL5LIB:

Thanks for the tip - however, PERL5LIB is set (to ~/lib/perl5).

The Module::Build docs state that Config.pm is used by Module::Build. 
So far as I can tell, the initial Build is using the system-wide perl 
installation (/usr/local, /etc/CPAN) and the 'Build install' to $HOME 
uses my personal Module::Build.  Problems arise because these are 
different versions (0.28 v 0.32).

I assume that I can edit the Build scripts in some way to use only my 
personal installation - will keep working on this.
