Perlbrew is perfect for that. It lets you run whatever version of perl and
specific modules that are needed without any system perl or other app
dependencies.  Plus most system perls are buggy and unpatched for yrs. The only
downside to this is some hosting plans count files and a full perl environment
for a webapp can easily hit 20K tiny files even if only 400MB of storage is used.

Regardless - happy the environment vars will work.
