Is there a way to avoid it?  Yes; trickery with @INC.  But I wouldn't
recommend it because you have no idea if your CPAN'd modules even work
under 5.8.8 -- you didn't run their test suites, and their (potential)
prerequisite core modules may have been changed.  (Not to mention new
features in the interpreter.)

Autobundle your old @INC, then install that bundle with your new perl.
Should work.
