You got the sources, right? In that case what you need to do is to unpack it, change to the resulting directory, run configure, and then build & install it. The INSTALL file in the distribution contains the steps that need to be do to configure, build & install it and they are:

chaos> tar xvzof stable.tar.gz
chaos> cd perl-5.6.1
chaos> rm -f config.sh Policy.sh
chaos> sh Configure -de
chaos> make
chaos> make test
chaos> su
Password:
chaos# make install

That will install perl into /usr/local/, which is good since that won't interfere with the RedHat copy and invalidate the RPM database or dependancies. To use the later version of perl you'll need to adjust your PATH so that /usr/local/bin/is searched before /usr/bin.
