if and when it fails tests perlbrew will tell you how to force install

Yeah ... I didn't mention this in the above rambling rant, but when it first failed to install (because of the test failures) I noticed the following advice at the end of the messages:
Generally, if you need to install a perl distribution known to have mi +nor test failures, do one of these commands to avoid seeing this message: perlbrew --notest install perl-5.6.2 perlbrew --force install perl-5.6.2
So, I re-ran the command with --force but it still failed in exactly the same way.
Then I noticed another message higher up:
If some perl tests failed and you still want to install this distribut +ion anyway, do: (cd /home/sisyphus/perl5/perlbrew/build/perl-5.6.2/perl-5.6.2; make +install)
So I did that, and it installed that build of perl-5.6.2 just fine.
