I need to install the XML::Parser module. Unfortunately, that package uses expat. Due to security concerns, I am not allowed to install the dev package of expat. making the CPAN Module fail to install.I have access to another machine without that limitation. I was told I need to compile on the second machine and move the binaries over.

Any Ideas on how to properly do that.

RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.

Compile elsewhere, and install the result. CentOS of the same version as RHEL should work fine for this.

can that be done via the CPAN shell, or the CPANPLUS shell? – Smartelf Apr 22 '13 at 19:20
