if that n2rrd is pack of Perl scripts, that requires only Perl 
and some modules, compile n2rrd and other dependences to, say, 
/usr/local/prorgams/n2rrd and run it; I do it for many 
programs, from zope to glade3 and they work perfectly

why that? if you use CentOS version without Perl 5.8 in 
updates repo, then you shouldn't upgrade Perl as RPM; Perl is 
very strategic program in system, on which depends tons of
