First time install into a fresh local::lib directory.  This is potentially 
broken either way, though: if another version exists anywhere earlier in 
@INC that trips the Makefile.PL check, it generates a Makefile that 
refuses to install anything.

There's more than one way -- it's Perl, after all -- for @INC to differ 
between install and run time, so this test and subsequent Makefile 
modifications aren't safe.
