SLES of some level
According to the openSUSE repos, SLES 11 uses 5.10.0. I'm not sure if that's entirely accurate, though.

I advise doing this too. You can also use something like App::PerlBrew(although unfortunately that doesn't work for me for some reason), or just download your favourite Perl version from CPAN and compile that.
I keep telling myself to use that, but I'd probably end up having to reinstall many of the modules(especially the XS ones), and that takes too much time.

    For the record, I'm not using perlbrew for this. Instead, I've written a perl script (using the system perl) which will build perl and all 100+ modules from source tarballs, including some patch files for cases where the module just won't compile/test clean (usually on AIX). I've got my modules in three categories, though I'm about to merge two of them: dev, test, and modules. For the distribution that will ship, I'm not going to build dev or test, but if I want to ensure they all work on each platform I can at least throw in test temporarily just to be sure. Meanwhile, I'm expecting dev boxes to use all of them. If I'm not testing, I also have in that build-perl script code to rewrite Makefile.PL/Build.PL files to remove Test::* dependencies.

    The dev directory has things like Term::ReadLine::Perl (for making the perl debugger easier to use), PPI (for automated code manipulation), and Enbugger (and their prereqs not met in the modules directory). The test directory has a bunch of Test::*, but also HTTP::Daemon (for testing AnyEvent::HTTP, I think), Sub::Uplevel, and others.

    I can rebuild from scratch in ~10 minutes on my Linux box. It's a bit longer on AIX. Possibly because I do most of my building on Linux on an SSD drive :-)
