Ravi,
   Are you looking for general help on how to build a perl binary from
source?  I believe you can simply do:

./Configure -Duseithreads

in a freshly untarred perl distribution and follow the build instructions.
 It will enable ithreads by default during the build.

Depending on what you're planning on doing with perl threads, you can also
try installing the forks CPAN module, which emulates threads without
requiring a threaded perl core (or even perl 5.8):
