I see this all the time with Perlish things (probably because I don't know
enough about how to install them properly :> )  What likely happened is that
the Cyrus Perl stuff got thrown into /usr/local/lib/perl5/, but Perl's @INC
doesn't know to look there.

I usually get around this by symlinking /usr/local/lib/perl5 to /usr/lib/perl5
*before* installing things, to make sure they all go to the same place.  Once
I figured out how to change @INC to include the /usr/local/lib/perl5 tree, but
promptly forgot how to do it.
