You are doing it wrong.

Just running perl -Mlocal::lib will print out the shell variables  
which you need to set for local::lib to work.

Printing stuff out is not the same as telling your shell about it.

See: http://search.cpan.org/~apeiron/local-lib-1.004008/lib/local/lib.pm#The_bootstrapping_technique

Specifically, you need to say something like:  echo 'eval $(perl -I 
$HOME/perl5/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib)' >>~/.bashrc
