understanding effects of moving addons from site_perl to vendor_perl

It's been a few weeks since I've used perl on my Win machine, but
noticed an error message about inability to find in my path
just for starting up perl.

It turned out in my env, I had one of the lib dirs set to /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8
and had it autoloading (not quite sure why at this point) the module
with "PERL5OPT=-MWin32".

Looking for, I find 3 copies and a 4th name-related copy:


Assuming I wanted to have the same autoload procedure in effect working,
what directory should be included?

One problem I see on my system seems to be that the perl distro's INC
path doesn't seem to include the 5.8.2 version files:

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/cygwin-thread
-multi-64int /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/cygwin-thread-m
ulti-64int /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl
5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/cygwin-thread-multi-64int /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5 /
usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .).
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

Shouldn't the perl library and perl interpreter be at the same version?

Is this a mistake or is the library "behind" the interpreter?  I didn't
choose "experimental" releases, so I would have expected stuff in the main
line to work together, is this just happenstance?
