The bit about two versions of perl may be true here. I know that there
are problems installing a second version of perl on a Solaris box. I
usually do not need a specific version enough to install a second one.
Please do take my advice as being from a one-perl-version guy.
Having different versions of libraries that different programs need to
find certainly is playing with fire. I try to avoid that. ;-)
I have not (so far!) had problems using crle as long as I check the
current path before I play with it. I think I recall that deleting
/var/ld/ld.config will put things back to normal, too, though.
