If the system is similar (same platform, kind of machine, etc), you should be OK. Installing it would be safer, of course.
Just make sure that Perl knows how to find the compiled module.

And, why not simply try this? You don't risk much if it doesn't work, do you?

It will depend on whether it compiles as a binary module (which would require a similar platform), and whether all the dependencies (e.g. linked libraries and other perl modules) are met on the other system.
