perlbrew doesn't compile Perl modules into executables.  perlbrew
compiles a whole another installation of perl for you, so that you don't
have to use /usr/bin/perl.  Once you're using your new perl, you can
install whatever modules you want from CPAN without wasting time getting
build and install paths correct everywhere.
