Perls of wisdom?

Doesn't seem like it has more than one install::

[root at mail MailScanner]# /usr/bin/perl -v

This is perl, v5.8.5 built for i386-linux-thread-multi

[root at mail MailScanner]# /usr/local/bin/perl -v
-bash: /usr/local/bin/perl: No such file or directory

[root at mail MailScanner]# rpm -q perl

Quite perplexing...I wonder if I move all this 5.8.6 stuff into the 
5.8.5 will break anything, or should I just leave it alone?
Perhaps some CPAN update dropped it in there for some reason.. I'm 
grasping at straws here.

Thanks for the reply Julian. ^_^
