Sorry, I was too hasty in my reply.  I did not observe and report missing
entries in @INC; just the mangling of the names.  Could you try the
fix I mention in the bug report and check if the missing entries will
reappear if the full path for $^X isn't mangled?

There is some special code in win32/win32.c that tries to find additional
lib directories at runtime, which may not be robust against this change
(and has some other weird edge cases that don't work properly).
However, virtually everybody is building Perl on Windows with the
simplified directory layout that doesn’t support the dynamic inc_version
list stuff, so problems normally go unnoticed.

Cheers,
-Jan
