Perl in RH9 should be fine.  Threads and PerlIO are standard in 5.8.x.
I've updated the documentation.

The mod_perl in RH9 won't work.  You'll need to compile your own or find
RPMs of Apache 1 / mod_perl 1.

http://www.reb00t.com/ has RPMs with mod_perl and mod_ssl included. 
Apparantly the binary RPMs don't work but recompiling the source RPM on
your local system yields a working, mod_perl/mod_ssl enabled Apache
1.3.28 package.  As is the case with third-party RPMs I can't vouch for
their quality or security, they could put backdoors on your system or
burn down your house, etc.
