    This is an interesting question. I am in the same boat, running 5.8.3 build 809 on XP Pro.

    All I have been able to find is the following

    If you are applying these patches, you'll need to make sure you have GNU patch v2.5 or later and the latest release against which the diffs are made. Some files in the perl distribution have carriage-ret +urns by design. You'll need to remove them before you you can apply the patches. % find -name \* -print | xargs perl -pi -e 's/\r$//' % patch -p1 -N < diffs/3479 % patch -p1 -N < diffs/3480 [..etc..]

    in the

    Readme in patch dir

    Let us know if you find anything more.

    From what I know of patches for other programs, I would say you can't.
    The patch is probably only suitable for people that are building their own Perl (using a compiler, etc) from source.
    It appears you are using a binary (ready-built) distribution (build 809), so you'll have to wait until ActiveState release a newer build.
