Do you really have a need to use ActiveState's perl on Solaris?

Personally I'd build perl and its modules from scratch...

However, to answer your question - ActiveState unfortunately doesn't
maintain a full database of precompiled binaries for all versions of
perl that it maintains.

This means that you will have to build sybperl manually - download the
tar.gz file from CPAN, and then read the instructions in the README.

You'll need the same compiler that ActiveState uses - you can check
this via perl -V.
