perlbrew on OSX

ibm1620 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've seen perlbrew recommended by a large number of people as a way to manage multiple local (within ~/) versions of Perl. My main desire is to be able to install Perls and CPAN modules without interfering with Mac OSX 10.8's system Perl.

I have installed perlbrew successfully, and tried using it to install Perl 5.14.2. This fails near the end, during a test: locale.t.

Test Summary Report ------------------- ../ext/POSIX/t/posix.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 66 +Failed: 0) TODO passed: 11 ../lib/locale.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 117 + Failed: 1) Failed test: 99 Files=2089, Tests=455813, 723 wallclock secs (55.63 usr 8.56 sys + 40 +2.42 cusr 50.30 csys = 516.91 CPU) Result: FAIL
This error also occurs when installing 5.12.4, and it occurred previously when I tried all this under OSX 10.7.4.

I found this link which appears to address this problem, but I don't have any idea how to make use of it.

Could anyone provide some insight?
