perlbrew/cpanm on 64 bit Ubuntuby emgrasso (Novice)

emgrasso has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am running on 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I would like to set up some clean test environments in perlbrew, but I am finding that some modules will not build in cpanm or cpan because some key libraries like libm and libxml2 are located in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu and /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/ instead of /usr/lib and /usr/include. What is the best way to handle this? Should I just install the 32bit libraries? Is there a way to configure cpan and/or cpanm and/or Makefile.PL to search the 64bit paths as well as the 32bit paths? Is there another option that I have not thought of? (Are the packages that ubuntu has available for installation for things like XML::LibXML 32bit or 64bit? Is there an easy way to find out?)
