Hi All.

This is what I want to do and how I propose I do it:

replace perl 5.6.1 on my redhat 7.2 box with 5.8.2

Proposed steps
1)	build 5.8.2 in a local director (/home/jason/perl5.8.2
2)	test it
3)	use that perl to install all of the modules I need
4)	remove all RPMs that rely on perl
5)	move this perl into place on top of the other perl


1 and 2 completed with no errors, BTW.
