[GNC] Getting Gnucash to recognize Finance::Quote is installed correctly on Mac OS 11.4

Not that I remember. It's a clean MacOS install when I got this computer in
November and it worked fine until the MacOS update last month which is why
the behavior is confounding.
The system perl in /usr/bin/perl is the only one on the system that I could
see with a quick sweep with the terminal find for any others and nothing
popped out as a different one I can see.
Also the "/Applications/Gnucash.app/Contents/MacOS/Gnucash-cli --quotes
get" throws "No quotes retrieved. Finance::Quote isn't installed
properly." even though I confirmed with the 'which' command that it's
pointing to the /usr/bin/perl like the gnc-fq commands do.

How does Gnucash verify that Finance::Quote is installed correctly on MacOS
11? I followed the instructions in the list archives archives to fix Test2
in CPAN, rebuild Quote::Finance via gnc-fq-update and now both gnc-fq-check
and gnc-fq-dump work as expected, but Gnucash still grays out the "Get
Quotes" on the Price Database screen and editing a security indicates that
Finance::Quote isn't properly installed. I've been using Gnucash for a
while and normally once gnc-fq-check and gnc-fq-dump start working there it
magically works, but this time no such luck.
Might you have installed another instance of perl, perhaps with Homebrew or
