HOW TO: building/upgrading Perl 5.8.0 & CPAN from scratch
Authored by: ld50 on Nov 03, '03 07:33:36AM

i found another easy way.

if you have fink installed first you have to update your fink then install the fink update for perl 5.8.0

apt-get update
apt-get install system-perl580

now finks perl is 5.8

then the perl installer seems to leave some of the old files around from the previous version of 5.6
so just move or remove /System/Library/Perl , /Library/Perl and /Network/Library/Perl (if you have it)

now when make install runs it'll install all the new perl files.
i worked for me. os x 10.2
