Actually, it perlfaq8 gives a basic description of the lib module;
enough to know what to do?

I can't find a reference to @LIB.

I know about the environment variables PERLLIB and PERL5LIB (perlrun)
I know about the -I option to perl (perlrun)
I know about 'use lib' (pragmas/lib)
I know about "BEGIN { unshift(@INC, 'x'); }"
	or "BEGIN { push(@INC, 'x'); }" (perlvar||pragmas/lib)

What is @LIB?
