Give PAR (Perl Archive Toolkit) [1] a try. I have not used perl2exe ($$$) 
before, but I've had good success with PAR. Once you've installed it's a 
simple matter of:

    pp -o out.exe src.pl

Note: If you want it to run in Windows environment you'll need to install PAR 
and Perl in that environment since pp will build an executable for the
environment that it is running in.

PAR has tons of other cool features such as zipping up your .pm's into a 
single file 

    zip foo.par Hello.pm World.pm

and then being able to use them by just:

    use PAR;
    use lib "foo.par"
    use Hello;

Which wasn't your question, so never mind that :)
