 On my 7.4 builds, in chapter 6 perl installs some files into
/usr/lib/perl5/5.18.1/x86_64-linux-gnu/.  It doesn't do that in
chapter 5.

 Similarly, in chapter 5 the book doesn't install the wide versions
of ncurses.

 No idea how you could have got ncurses libs installed into the perl
directory tree.  I guess you aren't scripting chapter 5, but if your
lfs user's bash history is available it might show something.
