1. Compile your own perl to /usr/local/bin or a relocatable perl

1a If relocatable also install and configure local::lib (mainly because of shebang issues and relocatable perl) (optionally install and configure local::lib anyway).

2. Update your PATH variable if necessary.

3. Install App::Cpanminus.

4.  Leave the system perl alone for system utilities.
