I needed perl on my openelec install for a sorting script.
I didn't want to build a custom OE with perl because I didn't want to loose the OE updates, and have to rebuild at each update.
So I thought, well, let's get the sources, but finally ended up with ActivePerl. Install, easypeasy, no problems. Modules installs... err not so much. But after many hours breaking my head on why oh why that didn't work, I wondered... there is no `make` right? I take it so much as granted that I didn't even think that it wouldn't probably be there.
So, my question: do you know of any way to maybe cross-compile the modules, or to install build tools?
Thanks for any and all help!

Hi - I'm trying to get Active Perl installed on my OpenElec so I can instal Logitech Media Server (LMS) - I have hit issues on the instal. (see my post on the slimdevices forum) any hints on how you managed it?
Doh! Linux is a big mystery to me, but I should have seen that one. Although, having said that, that matches the version that was used in the post whose instructions I am follwing (adjusted for newer version)
