I understand that there can only be one perl the first perl in PATH
but why can't be there several perls installed on the same system?
Portable Strawberry Perl will probably work without setting any
environment variable, right so if there is something relying on
environment variables it will not work in portable.
To answer your question, I think I saw the problems at the installation
phase of Wx related things or maybe module in general.
That's the reason I asked on the CPAN testers list about the honey pot.

My first reactionary response is to say that its a user problem. But
since that isn't what Strawberry is supposed to be about, the right
approach is probably to detect other Perls in the PATH and ask which
should be preferred.
However, I'd like to hear more about the nature of the problems.
Unless Padre is shelling out to "perl" and not $^X. I'm surprised that
the problems are significant.

In order to reduce the frustration, if possible Strawberry should
work along with other installed perl just as you can install
several perls on Linux.
If it is not possible or too much work it should try to recognize
that there is another Perl in the PATH and warn about it.
