Run perl -V and see if the path is there for @INC. If it's there, check
such things as permissions. If not, ponder deeply as to why this is so
(as /usr/lib/perl5 is a standard path for perl in /usr) and if you can't
fix it 'properly' you can work-around with the use of 'use lib' (see 
perldoc perlvar and search for @INC).
