Install a perl build from source

I would like to install a complete perl build from source on a certain unix. However, the source is in hundred tar.gz files (seems that one tar.gz. for each perl module).
Do I have to extract, make and install those by hand one by one, or is there a 'batch' command to do it in one turn?

CPAN did not work.

Go here

download file called stable.tar.gz

tar -zxvf stable.tar.gz -C /usr/local/src

cd /usr/local/src/perl_source_dir

Read the README and INSTALL files before building
