... and this may cause problems, as you see in the many fail reports on the cpan testers site. The problem is that some tools in the testing process (, Test::Harness) may set PERL5LIB. If now the perl used for autoheader does not match the perl used with ExtUtils::Autoconf (i.e. different perl versions, or threaded vs. unthreaded perl), then problems with mismatched linker symbols may happen. A workaround for this problem could be to explicitely delete the PERL5LIB and maybe other dangerous environment variables (e.g. PERL5OPT) before calling external tools which use perl.
