I try many way to just upgrade to lastest stable version of perl, because my company need Mail::SpamAssassin to filter junk mail for our client.

I think is good to have "some where" I can find the installation help. As I browse for perl.com for few days, I fail to find any useful and easy to understand information if "make test" just break.

The only links I can find is like this
http://www.nntp.perl.org/group/perl.daily-build.reports/7230

Error:

If you read this file _as_is_, just ignore the funny characters you see.
It is written in the POD format (see pod/perlpod.pod) which is specially
designed to be readable as is.

Hope it is helpful. And thanks for help ^_^.
