As a slight aside, if you're looking to build a current perl binary
for your mac (e.g. 5.12.1) you should take a look at perlbrew
(http://search.cpan.org/dist/App-perlbrew/).  The three steps at the
top of the installation section of the README are all you need to get
going.  Even a manager can do it.

If you're using bash on the mac via terminal you'll probably want to
put the one-liner they prescribe into your .bash_profile instead of
your .bashrc, but everything else just flows right along.

Once you have that in place you have a nicely isolated system into
which you can install things to your hearts content without worrying
about PERL5LIB and local::lib and the rest.
