Did you supply -Dprefix too?

Is that the new or old perl?

If your new perl is also being installed as /pro/bin/perl the module
build process might be confused.

For a Makefile.PL module build try checking the values of PERL and
FULLPERL in the generated Makefile to see if it points at
/opt/bin/perl (bad) or /opt/bin/perl5.28.1 (good).

I'm pretty sure you just confused the build process.
