Well I managed to get the issue ironed out by adding some lines into the MyConfig.pm. I gleaned the syntax from reading what was already there and using the variables you mentioned setting inside the CPAN shell. I would post more details but I am not on the same machine right now for reference.
I think I might try working with a second perl distribution when I get around to it as well, it would be good to learn how to do that.
Thanks for the help so far, I will try to post details of what I changed later in case any other users want to look at this thread for help/reference.
P.S. Regarding the @INC output, I will address that when I get home, I haven't run both of those commands to know.
