In Porting/Glossary, I find:

#####
versiononly (versiononly.U):
If set, this symbol indicates that only the version-specific
components of a perl installation should be installed.
This may be useful for making a test installation of a new
version without disturbing the existing installation.
Setting versiononly is equivalent to setting installperl's -v
option.

And, in installperl, I see that the '-v' option is described thus:

#####
-v Only install perl as a binary with the version number in the
name.
(Override whatever config.sh says)
#####
But, on still *more* investigation, it seems that if I configure *with* '-Dprefix=/usr' but *without* '-Dversionly', I reproduce the same puzzling values in the '^install*' section of config.sh as you got. See attachment.
