Just theorizing because I am not sure (hopefully someone else can agree with
me or tell you the correct answer).
The modules are loaded according to the sequence they are found in @INC ...
So I assume that /usr/local/interchange is earlier in your @INC than the
other locations where the modules are found ... 

Perhaps modifying the commandline in interchange/bin/interchange might do
the trick by adding:
#!/path/to/perl -I /path/to/systemlocation/of/modules

Other option, not sure if that would help, is setting the PERL5LIB
environment variable to the path of your systemlocaton of the perl modules
you want to use.
