Build libperl.so shared library from static library or source?

    Hey all,

    I recently installed RHEL4, which included an RPM'd Perl (5.8.5
    IIRC). I downloaded the source for Perl 5.8.8 which I managed to
    build and install but I didn't opt to build the shared library
    libperl.so.

    After the newly built Perl seemed happy, I tore out the RPM'd Perl,
    and replaced /usr/bin/perl with a link to the new executable.
    However, /usr/bin/vim (and probably many other programs) are still
    looking for the shared library.

    Question: as I'm far from expert in this field, can I somehow build a
    shared version of libperl either from libperl.a or from the source
    files, or do I need to go through the entire Configure/make/test/
    install procedure from scratch making sure I select the shared library
    option?

    TIA,
    -jp
