My real problem is with DBI::mysql
It seems to think that mysql.sock is at /tmp/mysql.sock.
It isn't. It's at /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock. /usr/bin/mysql knows this,
/usr/bin/mysql_config knows this, and /etc/my.cnf knows this, but
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql still looks for /tmp/mysql.sock, as does DBI::mysql.
It's almost as if I have two versions of mysql on my machine, but I don't. Why on earth
DBI::mysql takes one above the other is anyone's guess.

You cannot change the location at compile time, because it is compiled into
the C driver. However, you may change it at run time.
