Documentation error for beta Validator

On page http://validator.w3.org:8001/source/
it says "...Perl. You'll need version 5.6.0 or newer."

I downloaded the latest version of NET-IP (one of the dependencies 
mentioned on that page) and tried to do:

   perl Makefile.PL

only to get this message:

   Perl v5.8.0 required--this is only v5.6.1, stopped at Makefile.PL line 
1.
   BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Makefile.PL line 1.

Suggestion: update the documentation, or specify which version of Net-IP 
will allow building with Perl 5.6.x
