Now I am confused,

either you build an executable and then you should not care what
version of perl is available on the target box (you don't even need perl
for that matter)  (have you looked at the Solaris version of the
Perl DevKit of Activestate ?)


you use the local perl and give the customer your source code.
In this case you could include in your source code a module that was
actually downloaded from CPAN. Just as if you wrote your code in a modular

Looking at the test results of Net::Telnet
it is pretty impressive with it 39 pass-es, you have a good chance it
will work on that version of perl too.


or you package your code and modules using PAR:

It passes the tests but of course it might be broken.
Anyway, trying to go that route, you might get much more help than perlcc

AFAIK perlcc is considered plain broken and not recommended.
