Gabor,
  I did that too and found the fix. There's a specific directory set which
must be in @INC, and you simply need to tell ./Configure about it.  The
directories are:
/usr/lib/perl5
/usr/share/perl5
/usr/local/lib/site_perl

That will ensure that it plays nicely with the system, as well as with perl
modules installed via dpkg
