The easiest solution might be use a lib or local::lib pragma statement in each script pointing to where the module is installed.
lib preagma
local::lib pragma

The other option would be to use cpan or cpanm to reinstall the module so that it gets put within your @INC path.

Maybe you could try adding /lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 to your PERL5LIB environment

@INC contains /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl but you have found Dahdi.pm under ./lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/. Since pm files are Perl source, you could try copying Dahdi.pm to one of the directories mentioned in @INC. Any non-text files in ./lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/ will be 32-bit, probably unsuitable for you so I would caution against mentioning that directory in the path.

From folder where you did the find command:

cp ./lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Dahdi.pm /usr/local/lib64/perl5/

@D_wathi re: @INC you posted @INC contains: /usr/sbin /usr/sbin/perl_modules /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl in your original Q. So any of these directories would be fine as a target into which to copy

@Duncan Roe - Asker may not realize that @INC is output from the lsdahdi command.

@D_wathi - Did you run the cp command I suggested?

Keep in mind that if you decide to copy the Dahdi.pm module to another location, you'll also need to copy the Dahdi directory which has the rest of the supporting modules that Dahdi.pm needs.

When you need to upgrade down the road and use rpm, you'll need to remember to recopy those files otherwise you may not have the updated versions of the perl modules.

This path issue is one of the reasons I always built  asterisk and dahdi from source rather than using yum or rpm.

Based on your @INC paths, it appears that you may have multiple versions of perl installed or someone previously modified the PERL5LIB environment var to accommodate a similar install issue.
