As far as I know, you do not need to compile Apacxhe with mod_perl.  You 
can install mod_perl a posteriori.  I guess CentOS is a form of Linux 
(sorry, I really don't know), and in that case there is probably a 
mod_perl package that you can just install if needed.
And, depending on the package manager of the system, it may even install 
perl itself if it isn't there yet.

The easiest way to see if your Apache has mod_perl (not only that 
mod_perl is there, but also that it is being loaded when starting 
Apache) is probably to look in the Apache error log for the initial 
lines appearing when Apache is started.
If mod_perl is loaded, it will show something like this :

[Sun Apr 20 23:18:27 2008] [notice] Apache/2.2.3 (Debian) DAV/2 
mod_jk/1.2.18 PHP/4.4.4-8+etch4 mod_ssl/2.2.3 OpenSSL/0.9.8c 
mod_perl/2.0.2 Perl/v5.8.8 configured -- resuming normal operations

(notice the mod_perl part).
If mod_perl isn't loaded, it won't mention mod_perl.
