Install custom updated Perl

If you need a second perl installation, without messing up the system perl, there’s a fairly easy way:

mkdir /usr/local/perls;cd /usr/local/perls
tar -xzf perl-5.26.1.tar.gz
cd perl-5.26.1
./Configure -des -Dusethreads -Dprefix=/usr/local/perls/perl-5.26.1
make;make test;make install
cd /usr/local/perls/
rm -f /usr/local/perls/perl-5.26.1.tar.gz
