Your perl from chapter 5 is probably broken.  Try perl -V : if it is
working correctly, you should get a lot of information including the
libc it was linked against and @INC pointing to several directories
under /tools/lib/perl5.

There seem to be two common errors here -

 updating a script to use a newer version of perl, and forgetting to
update the version in the directory names (so that the perl modules are
installed somewhere not in @INC)

 coming back to chroot after leaving it or powering off, and building
against the host's glibc.

 das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
