Yes, I ended up with a lot:

# ls /usr/local/interchange/lib
Bundle    DBI.pm  HTTP        LWP.pm  Parse        Storable.pm  Vend
dbixs_rev.pl    lwptut.pod
Business  Digest  Image       MIME    Roadmap.pod  TASKS.pod    WWW
hints.pl        perllocal.pod
DBD       File    IniConf.pm  Net     Set          Term         Win32
install_lsb.pl  relocate.pl
DBI       HTML    LWP         OLE     Spreadsheet  UI           auto

Is that a whole slew of perl modules?  Will IC use those instead of
the ones I installed into the system via portage?
