I am trying to build a perl module (p5-DBD-Pg) which has the following
setting in its Makefile:


However, this gives the error that perl5.24.2 cannot be found. 
Perl5.24.1 is the version available through the package manager.  I am
not comfortable with replacing the current version of Perl system-wide
so I would like to simply have the module build with installed

If I set USE_PERL5=5.24+ then the make file fails.  If I set
USE_PERL5=5.24+ configure then it goes back to asking for and failing
to find perl5.24.2.  How do I tell the module to use perl5.24.1 AND
get it to configure?
