Upgrade perl on Solaris box

Just built a new Solaris 10 box, then I installed the CPAN bundle such as:
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::CPAN'

That all looks to have installed fine.
Now I have a lot of modules to install from CPAN but getting an error that I need to upgrade my version of Perl.

perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::LWP'
...
....
Perl v5.8.8 required--this is only v5.8.4, stopped at Makefile.PL line 3.
Running make test
  Make had some problems, maybe interrupted? Won't test
Running make install
  Make had some problems, maybe interrupted? Won't install
Bundle summary: The following items in bundle Bundle::LWP had installation
problems:
  MIME::Base64 Digest::MD5 HTML::Parser HTML::HeadParser LWP

Now that I have CPAN installed I'm sure there is an easy way to upgrade Perl, but not sure how on the Solaris box, have only done that one a windows box.

What do I need to do to upgrade the Perl version?

Thanks,
Perl

Perl is a high-level, general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming languages with over 25 years of development. Perl 5 runs on over 100 platforms from portables to mainframes and is suitable for both rapid prototyping and large-scale development projects. Perl gained widespread popularity as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripting language, in part due to its regular expression and string parsing abilities. In addition to CGI, Perl is used for graphics programming, system administration, network programming, finance, bioinformatics, and other applications.
