I tried this and it didn't work.
Following a hunch, I continued to look for perl 5.6.1 and newer mod_perl rpms. I found some source RPMS and rebuilt
perl through RPM
mod_perl through RPM
and apacha through RPM
ran the updates to my system and this works now.
I need the RPM format because I will be doing this again to other systems, and it is much easier/quicker to just RPM -U the packages that I made.
Thanks for your help.
