in thread Solaris, Perl 5.8 and use 5.005

Yes it is entirely possible to have a different Perl installation - you simply use a different PREFIX when you run Configure. IMO this is preferable to replacing an existing perl if you don't want to have to test and possibly fix a whole bunch of existing code. And it is definitely what you want to do if you have a preinstalled Perl that came with your OS (though I don't think Solaris 6 did.)
