You need to make sure that Cyrus::IMAP::Shell (Cyrus/IMAP/ is 
on your perl search path. This can be set using an environment variable, 
an argument to perl, etc. I've just edited bin/cyradm to explicitly add 
the search path to the perl command(s), as - like you - I keep Cyrus in 
a non-standard location.

'man perlrun' should get you started.
