No, the trick is that Perl specifically prepends the search for where to
find modules with blib/lib (pure Perl code) and blib/arch (compiled XS).
  The issue is that _only_ Perl does this; other code uses the OS
library load routines which can sometimes be fooled (i.e. setting
environment variables), but not always.
