I do understand that the situation currently can be a bit confusing. I
don't know of a simple response to your problem. Because it also depends
on Perl versions etc.

It's probably easiest to build your binaries, then run LMS with
--d_startup enabled to get the maximum output from the initialization.
And go from there: if you see a version mis-match, check what is being
built in slimserver-vendor. Make sure you copy both the binary AND the
..pm of the modules.

Are you still having a problem running LMS now?
