So, if I understand you correctly, you want to have both 5.6.1 and 5.8.8 in your dev environment so that you can test the scripts in each perl environment without having to change the prod system. Is that correct?

I've done a little searching and have not found any old binaries for download. Activestate does state that they have archives of these available, if you're willing to pay for their ($1,000) Business Edition.
That's not the approach I'd take, but it would be the easiest. I'd download the source code, which is available at the link I provided in my prior post, and compile it myself.
