Just go to CPAN, get it, and read the README. It can be as simple

	# tar xzf perl-5.8.0.tar.gz
	# cd perl-5.8.0
	# ./Configure -des && make test && make install

I am now recommending that people use a parallel Perl instead
of replacing Red Hat's perl in most cases, as a new Perl can
break some Red Hat configuration software. If it is a server
it should not be too big a deal, as most of the problems are with
the GUI config tools.
