Depends on where you installed them to.  If you installed them into
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl, then you will need to remove those modules
from there (or rename the whole directory if you just need to check what
else is going to break).  If you've installed to some local::lib, then
you can just remove the customization that lets Perl know where to find
