The supported way to do that on RHEL type OSes wasn’t added until CentOS 6.5, which comes with Perl 5.10 already.

Prior to that, you have to either:

1. Find a third-party RPM and hope for the best.  (Not exactly a production-grade solution!)

2. Use PerlBrew or similar, which largely defeats the purpose of using a stable Linux like CentOS in the first place.  If we wanted to build platform software from source, we’d be on Arch or Gentoo.

I think we’re either going to have to hold off on D2 for some time, or as you say, try to get the Xslate plugin backported to 5.8.
