Sorry, can't help much from here since I've never tried to install a non-system perl.If you can get the second perl working, I was going to say you'd install the xkcd reader directly from cpan using one of the cpan clients (cpan, cpan plus, cpan minus, etc. -- okay, I'm not sure there really is an "etc." here but probably). But looking at the port, it doesn't look like the viewer on cpan. Compare (the one the port uses)

to (an app on cpan I assumed for a moment the port must be based on)

Looks like different programs. Maybe instead of going down the route of getting a second perl you could try installing this other xkcd viewer directly from cpan. It doesn't seem to have as difficult prerequisites.
