1) It says:

  Can't locate in @INC

But the module is SWISH::PhraseHighlight -- not just PhraseHighlight.  
Are you using a config file and forgot to add the SWISH:: part of the 
module name?

Are you using a config file where you forgot to add the SWISH:: part?

2) The above shows:

  @INC contains: 

Looks like you are doing:

  use lib qw( '/usr/local/lib/swish-e/perl/SWISH' );

"qw" is "quote-word" and the quote characters are ( and ) -- the extra 
quotes make the path invalid.

That's because the module contains at the top of the file

  package SWISH::PhraseHighlight;

so you load it by file name (without the SWISH:: part) but its symbols 
are still in the SWISH::PhraseHighlight name space -- so Perl is correct 
that there is not any "new" subroutine in the "PhraseHighlight" package.

Likely because you are not using any highlighting module, and those are 
what trim the description on display.
