Upgrading perl - delimas, predicaments, and sheer noobiness

    Ok, so:

    I have a neat little freebsd server up and running with a total of 4gb
    of space. What I want to do is upgrade perl from 5.0003 to 5.8.6.

    5.8.6 isn't in the ports tree, and when I try to get 5.8.2 from the
    ports tree installed, I keep getting told I have no more hard drive
    space. My question is, how feasible would be to completely remove perl
    from the system and install it again with a fresh clean install of the
    newest version.

    Thanks

    Can you install from source? You can get 5.8.6 source from
    <http://www.cpan.org/src/README.html>

    FYI: this newsgroup is defunct; try comp.lang.perl.misc in the future.
