This was always pretty easy.  I've had boxes with half a dozen
different 5.8 installs on them for special purposes.  You just need to
specify a path when you install perl.

You also need to install mod_perl for each perl install.  You can do
that just by running the appropriate CPAN shell or /path/to/perl
Makefile.PL for each one.  You will need to give it the path to the
correct apache as well, IIRC.  This stuff is baked into the Krang
installer if you want an example.
