BTW, you don't need to switch the entire server to testing (or unstable); you can just upgrade perl. Try

[sudo or whatever] apt-get install perl/testing

    Or even

    apt-get build-dep --compile perl && apt-get source --compile perl

    with

    deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian testing main or deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian unstable main

    cp

    Thanks, that sounds like a viable option. That way, I can install perl, Apache and mod_perl from testing. Of course, there are still some security issues, but at least I only have a few packages to watch, not a whole system.
