Yes, I have perl 5.8.8 so no problem there. The build successfully  
installed the necessary CPAN dependencies (which is nice) but reports  
that it ``Can't locate IPC/Cmd.pm in @INC''. Installing that perl  
reports two more dependencies not met. ...

While it is certainly doable, time is the issue for me right now.
