No, they are totally different. They just have the same basename, by accident.

If you are not using any perl site_lib dlls, rebaseall is enough.
If you are using perl site_lib dlls, you need to do perlrebase also.

In your case you did not have perl-Image-Magick installed, you installed it
seperately via CPAN into site_lib. This might create conflicts, if they are
from different versions.
