Both RHEL4 and RHEL5 shipped with perl 5.8.x, because perl 5.10 hadn't
been released at the point in time that RHEL4 (and then RHEL5)

RHEL6 has perl 5.10.  But RHEL4 and RHEL5 are going to stay with perl
5.8 until they go EOL, because trying to upgrade to perl 5.10 would
(unfortunately) break far too many things.
