Of course I did it differently! Which explains a lot. I'm now piecing together what I DID do... 

I clearly built ImageMagick "--without-perl", because (as I've just found from a few posts on the interweb) it simply doesn't compile with the system level Perl, and I don't have a non-system Perl installed. 

It was a week ago, and I didn't keep notes.
