Did you run the script "as the user that runs Subversion" as David
suggested? This user is generally apache, nobody, www-data or such on
unix type systems. The /root directory is typically setup with root
user only access, which would prevent a script running as a non-root
user from being able to access files in /root/perl5/lib.
