in thread Installing a Second perl

Well, that is fine for a /usr/local/ perl, but not for one that is configured for /lab like the OP is trying to do.

It should be installing man pages into /lab/man which is what OP has permissions to use.

    Quite correct - I had missed that the op was intending to install perl into /lab. (Assumed he had intentionally installed perl into the default /usr/local.)
