Okay, so if you were able to install Perl there is no bug in Perl itself
-- which is what this list is all about.  So I'm going to close this RT.

If you used perlbrew to install underneath your home directory, you can
use cpanm (App::Cpanminus on CPAN) to install modules compiled against a
specific version of Perl.

I'm also going to recommend two resources:

* If you have access to IRC, log on to #perl-help on  That
channel is designed to handle questions like yours.

* Likewise, is a good site for problems like yours.

Thank you very much.
