2 Solutions:

1/ Use the Perl compiler module (available on CPAN mirrors). It's beta but
said to work well.

2/ Dump your script by adding '-u' to your perl command line; then
use undump to recover an executable from the core file ('strip' it
to make it smaller).

I personaly only tried 2/ on SunOS-4.1.3 (works great ;).
The only undump program I've heard of running under Linux is coming in the
emacs src.

Mark: could you please consider making another binary package from the
emacs src containing undump?
