You mean about 40 additional modules downloaded from CPAN?

It's safest to build them once for your perl 5.6.1

perl5.6.1 Makefile.PL
make all
make test
make install

and then again for perl 5.8.0

perl5.8.0 Makefile.PL
make all
make test
make install

(where you replace perl5.6.1 and perl5.8.0 with your names for your two
perl binaries)

Or if you prefer, perl5.6.1 -MCPAN -e shell and perl5.8.0 -MCPAN -e shell
