Yes. It works. We're running Mailscanner on various boxes under both
10.20 and 11.11 using locally built versions of Perl 5.8.x

As long as the compiler used to build perl matches the one used to build
the modules, you should be ok. I used HP's cc because at the time, GCC
was still a bit of a moving target.

Performance? Throw memory at it.
