fixing the documentation

hello people,

D526P: https://docs.raku.org/language/5to6-nutshell#index-entry-PERL6LIB-PERL6LIB
DFIM : https://docs.raku.org/language/modules#Finding_installed_modules
DLIB : https://docs.raku.org/programs/03-environment-variables#index-entry-RAKULIB

This D526P is deprecated and some RAKULIB details are redundant with
both DFIM and DLIB.

I would like to propose a patch so:

* the details of RAKULIB comes in DLIB
* DFIM  refers to DLIB
* D526P refers to DFIM

But D526P asserts something i read nowhere else:

    Note that C<PERL6LIB> is more of a developer convenience in Raku (as
    opposed to the equivalent usage of C<PERL5LIB> in Perl) and shouldn't be
    used by module consumers as it could be removed in the future.  This is
    because Raku's module loading isn't directly compatible with operating
    system paths.

Is it still true? if so, should this paragraph be in DFIM?

regards,
marc
