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.
