We have been using plenv to build perl on CentOS 7:


Our reasons for preferring it over perlbrew are similar to those 
described in this blog post:


I prefer to build custom RPMs for Perl and the CPAN modules so they 
install more quickly and without needing development libraries installed, 
etc. We've done that in the past for RHEL/CentOS 3, 4, 5, and 6, but it's 
a lot of work to set all that up and we haven't done if for 7 yet.
