According to perlrun , running with -T (taint mode) will cause Perl to
ignore PERLLIB and PERL5LIB. But that is probably not really what you

I guess the simplest solution is what you said- to unsetenv PERLLIB and
PERL5LIB before calling your script. I guess, now that I think of it, that
also answers the first question- easier to unset the variables from the
shell, rather then adding yet more switches to Perl.
