I tried creating the RPM file although it didnt work I was able to install it
this way

yum install gcc
wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/D/DO/DOUGM/ExtUtils-Embed-1.14.tar.gz

    Unfortunately, this does not work for me. Mine crashes with the “bash make_rpm.sh” command:
    xsinit.c: In function ‘xs_init’:
