I haven't tried getting this to work on RHEL 5 perl for a couple of
years.  Back then it could be done, but needed work - a couple of sets
of tests needed to be ignored (I didn't spend a lot of time working out

Now I don't bother.  Perlbrew, perl 5.16.x and current CPAN is one hell
of a lot easier, and more stable when RHEL issue a perl bugfix.  Same
apples to RHEL 6 - perl 5.10 is not exactly modern either.
