The way @INC and $ENV{PERL5LIB} are treated in ./Build and elsewhere (such as _perl_is_same()) leads to confusion in some situations. The current behavior is too complicated, but perhaps cannot be changed without breaking compatibility. A workaround is for the user to set $ENV{PERL5OPT} with "-I$dir". See ticket #29899.
