Permanently and inviariantly, no.
Within a script, you can say
use lib "/usr/local/lib";
And perl pays attention to the environment variable PERL5LIB, which you
can set for all users in /etc/profile or the apropriate file for the
shell(s) in use on your system. Set it to a colon-separated list of
places to look in before looking at the compiled-in path.
