Hmmm. "perldoc perlrun" says:

PERL5LIB        [...] Any architecture-specific and version-specific
                directories, such as version/archname/, version/, or
                archname/ under the specified locations are automatically
                included if they exist

So PERL5LIB does the right thing. Unfortunately EUMM's INSTALL_BASE does
not support this.
