RH7 / latest MySQL rpm from mysql site. Perl 5.6.0

 DBI connect failed: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket
'/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (111)

Have redone CPAN DBI and DBD installs. perl reports that both are up to
date. I can access the data via mysql and webmin/sql.

Any ideas?

What's worse is that on another machine I have it all working. Even tried a
tar from the working one and get same error.
Permissions on /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock same on both machines.

Any pointers greatly appreciated.
