That checks your system perl, but for a perl build you need to check the bundled modules with the perl you're building.

Inside the perl build directory please run:

  ./miniperl -Mversion -e0

Please include everything that outputs if it fails.

This uses miniperl, since that's what will be using.  It skips adding -Ilib since lib/ should have been built at this point and miniperl will load that.
