[CentOS] Perl - strict.pm not found

I installed the ClamAV package onto a CentOS 6.3 server using yum. I
then modified the /etc/freshclam.conf file to run a perl script whenever
the ClamAV databases were updated:

	OnUpdateExecute /usr/local/bin/xymon_event ...

The 'xymon_event' command is used on several servers, and generally
works with no problems. However, on this server when
the /etc/cron.daily/freshclam script runs in the early morning, I get
sent an email error message:


Can't locate strict.pm in @INC (@INC
contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at /usr/local/bin/xymon_event line 15.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/bin/xymon_event line 15.

The problem is that 'strict.pm' is located in /usr/share/perl5 (as it is
on our other servers), and /usr/share/perl5 is specified in @INC.

So I am a bit lost as to why perl seems to think that strict.pm cannot
be found. Anyone any ideas?

We run ClamAV, with the freshclam cron job and xymon_event, on other
servers (albeit CentOS 5.8) with no problems.
