It sounds like you're trying to run Makefile.pl from a browser, you
can't do that. You need to run it from a terminal or shell.
If that's not the case please provide more detail of exactly what you're
trying to do and the exact error message you get, not just generalizations.

It's 5.6.2 or later, 5.8.1 is good enough, but you should check that
it's non-threaded ("perl --version" will tell you if it's threaded).
Otherwise download and compile the latest 5.8 version of perl (I believe
5.8.10). 5.8.1 is early in the 5.8 release cycle and now considered old
and buggy (5.6.2 is *way* old). I can't give specifics of where to put
it on a mac, though.
