You need to add *all* the appropriate entries that you normally find
in perl -V to PERL5LIB.

For example, perl5.004_04 here needs 

So you would need to do something like:

setenv PERL5LIB "/opt/gnu_mnt/lib/perl5/sun4-solaris/5.00404:/opt/gnu_mnt/lib/perl5:/opt/gnu_mnt/lib/perl5/site_perl/sun4-solaris:/opt/gnu_mnt/lib/perl5/site_perl

which *should* work.
