When I tried to install padre I got a message that I need a Perl with ithreads enabled. So when I rebuild my Perl, are these configure-options OK?

sh Configure -de -Duseithreads

And if I rebuild Perl from the same source-files which I used for the actual Perl can I keep my already installed modules?

You should use perlbrew for compiling Perl. Are you installing the same version of Perl in exactly the same place? Probably. But I would prefer to reinstall them...

See my howto on the subject padre - perlbrew - cpanminus:
