Hmmm, if it's hell bent on anything, it's on what perl was used to run
'Configure'.  I'm not sure if you use that script directly or if you
use 'config'...  the latter will certainly look at $PERL to run
'Configure', and this one will register $^X (perl's internal variable
to indicate the exact file name of the interpreter), which is then
propagated to Makefile (make variable $(PERL)) and used there.  Did we
miss a spot?  I'm willing to correct that...
