Perl's DBI Module on OS X - uninstallable?

i've been struggling with installing the Perl DBI & DBD modules all weekend, and I'm getting close, but no cigar as of yet. When I run the perl script I get the following mismatch error:
Mon Apr 19 09:43:29 EDT 2010 
/Library/Perl/DBD-mysql-4.011 ->
peterv@MBP17.local<515>$: | tee ~/DBI_Mismatch.log
DBI object version 1.609 does not match $DBI::VERSION 1.608 at /opt/local/lib/perl5/5.10.1/darwin-multi-2level/ line 227.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1/darwin-multi-2level/ line 263.
Compilation failed in require at /Users/peterv/Perl1/ line 7.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /Users/peterv/Perl1/ line 7.

I've obviously installed 2 versions of the DBI module, and during compilation the source and objects became mismatched. I'd like help with 2 questions:

1. Do I have to uninstall the DBI modules currently installed? (I would guess yes.)

2. How can I uninstall them? (I've found many articles on the web about how to install them, but none on how to uninstall them.)

I'd be very grateful for any advice.

DBD::Gofer::Transport::null(3)				User Contributed Perl Documentation			    DBD::Gofer::Transport::null(3)

DBD::Gofer::Transport::null - DBD::Gofer client transport for testing SYNOPSIS
my $original_dsn = "..." DBI->connect("dbi:Gofer:transport=null;dsn=$original_dsn",...) or, enable by setting the DBI_AUTOPROXY environment variable: export DBI_AUTOPROXY="dbi:Gofer:transport=null" DESCRIPTION
Connect via DBD::Gofer but execute the requests within the same process. This is a quick and simple way to test applications for compatibility with the (few) restrictions that DBD::Gofer imposes. It also provides a simple, portable way for the DBI test suite to be used to test DBD::Gofer on all platforms with no setup. Also, by measuring the difference in performance between normal connections and connections via "dbi:Gofer:transport=null" the basic cost of using DBD::Gofer can be measured. Furthermore, the additional cost of more advanced transports can be isolated by comparing their performance with the null transport. The "t/85gofer.t" script in the DBI distribution includes a comparative benchmark. AUTHOR
