I read the question -- from Mr. Adkins? -- about ten minutes ago and
summarily deleted it... only to stumble across the answer moments
later while installing HTML::Parser, during which the following was

  Perl-5.8 provide core support for Unicode strings.  You can compile
  HTML::Entities so that Unicode entities like € and € are
  decoded into a string containing "\x{20AC}".  If you select no to
  the question below such entities will be left alone and only entities
  in the Latin-1 range is decoded.

Sounds like you just need to reinstall with different options.
