Build shared library from static library or source?

Hey all,

I recently installed RHEL4, which included an RPM'd Perl (5.8.5
IIRC). I downloaded the source for Perl 5.8.8 which I managed to
build and install but I didn't opt to build the shared library

After the newly built Perl seemed happy, I tore out the RPM'd Perl,
and replaced /usr/bin/perl with a link to the new executable.
However, /usr/bin/vim (and probably many other programs) are still
looking for the shared library.

Question: as I'm far from expert in this field, can I somehow build a
shared version of libperl either from libperl.a or from the source
files, or do I need to go through the entire Configure/make/test/
install procedure from scratch making sure I select the shared library
