Where are the perl files being installed on your Centos 7 systems? I built from source using the, configure, make, make install sequence.
My base install is going under /root/perl5. It fails when I try to run with the error that it can't find
If I change the protection on /root from drwxr-x--- to drwxr-x--x it can find ZoneMinder.

I have been trying to change where the perl files get installed into a directory that is not root only protected, but so far I am lost trying to understand the / configure scripts.
If perl libs are getting installed under your home folder, then it sounds like you've got the perl-local-lib package installed. This seems to be a "feature" of CentOS 7, and it needs to be uninstalled. This was discussed earlier in this thread.
Visit my blog for ZoneMinder related projects using the Raspberry Pi, Orange Pi, Odroid, and the ESP8266
