[Bucardo-general] Strange Bug with multiple Perl in MacOS X

Let me explain the situation:

I installed MacPorts package on MacOS X Lion, together with perl5.12.
MacPorts successfully modified all export PATHes, so when you type
perl -V it shows following @INC:


Because  Bucardo  script  is started with #!/bin/usr/env perl, it also
successfully  picks  up  the  right verion of perl

I installed all required packages, INCLUDING DBD::Pg to the new @INC,
perl -MDBD::Pg -e 1 shows module is installed.

But  then  I have a strange bug, happening in Bucardo, and it concerns
only DBD::Pg module:

bash-3.2#  bucardo add table public.LocationFacilities db=local herd=localherd standard_conflict=target

DBD::Pg::st execute failed: ERROR:  install_driver(Pg) failed: Can't locate DBD/Pg.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /Library/Perl/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level

Perhaps the DBD::Pg perl module hasn't been fully installed,
or perhaps the capitalisation of 'Pg' isn't right.
Available drivers: DBM, ExampleP, File, Gofer, Proxy, SQLite, Sponge.

CONTEXT:  PL/Perl function "validate_goat" at /opt/local/bin/bucardo line 4637.

As  you  see, for some reason it searches in old @INC (the @INC of the
default perl installed in MacOS).

Failing line is

$sth = $dbh->prepare(SQL)
--> ($count = $sth->execute(@args)) =~ s/0E0/0/;
debug(qq{Added "$schema.$table" to goat table with db "$db", count was

All other modules in "use XXXX" are loading just fine.
