Default Perl packages polluting root directory

In the recent KDE4 thread, someone mentioned autounmask. I emerge the package
and tried to run it. I got the following error:

Can't locate PortageXS.pm in @INC (@INC contains: .....

PortageXS was listed as installed but I emerged it again. Still getting the
same error, I ran "locate PortageXS.pm." Locate found it. In the root
directory of my drive. My root directory now looks like this:

root / # ls -l

One thing which may have contributed to this is that I recently downloaded and
installed Perl v 5.10.0. (I'm doing some Perl work which required the new
version.) Anyone have a clue as to what might be screwed up on my system?
