 Today I upgraded the Compress:: modules family, which comes in a half
 dozen parts, from 2.008 to 2.009.  I had a world of hurt because the later
 parts insisted that I only had 2.008 installed and, while I suspected
 cruft lying around, I couldn't find it.  After a good amount of digging, I
 discovered

 http://perldoc.perl.org/ExtUtils/MakeMaker.html

 which recommends using "make install UNINST=1" to ensure that old versions
 of things are cleaned up.

 This might be worth noting to save others time given that people will
 sometimes use the book instructions outside of a fresh start.
