Suggestion: leave vendor distributed code alone unless you
are replacing it with more vendor distributed code using a
vendor approved method.
The whole point to having /opt on the system outside /usr
is to put your own software into it. Just install perl into
/opt/perl/5.8.1,, make a few symlinks, and use /opt/bin/perl
in your own #! code.
