I know if you install EE there is a perl binary distribution buried down in there that I have used before. DBI/DBD was already compiled and available so it made it pretty easy. Update your PATH setting and point your #!/bin/perl line to the correct binary and it works. Just don't expect to customize with any of your own packages, best to just leave it alone in my experience.

If you don't have an EE installation around I have become pretty good at installing the Strawberry Perl distribution on Windows workstations where I need Perl and DBI. Works out good because you don't even need Admin rights. I documented the procedure I use here, have confirmed it works on 32-bit WIndows but haven't tried on 64-bit yet: .
