I use App::perlbrew and ignore the system Perl 5:
Several deployment options exist: one perlbrew per application or one per user
or one per compilation of Perl 5.
The latter approach works for me, but I don't mind reinstalling all of my CPAN
dependencies every time I install a new Perl 5 point release. If that's a
bother for you (and it may become one for me), one local::lib installation per
Perl 5 major release family can help.
