EU::MM/MakeMaker is what 98% of all Makefile.PL's use to perform this very
task. It's a standard Perl module (i.e., it comes with Perl). Oh, and it gets
the path correct. Frankly, I don't understand the reluctance to utilize it.

IMHO, Apache::Test shouldn't be using $Config{perlpath} either.

Linux, dual AMD processors. Mostly Red Hat 7.3, but with an updated kernel
that has the latest security patches.
