Why? Why not 5.6.2, 5.8.8 or 5.8.9, or even (bravado) 5.10.1?

If you choose an old enough version of DBI, then yes. You might have
to go to the BackPan though, instead of CPAN.

Hmm; 1.49 dropped support for 5.6.0 (only supporting 5.6.1 or later).
Up to 1.609, I can see no mention of not supporting 5.6.1.

So, DBI 1.609 should work for you.

DBI-1.605 was the last version not to require perl 5.8. Even though the
Readme doesn't state it, version 1.606 and newer requires 5.8.10 in the
Makefile.PL and will not let you create a makefile without some editing of
the Makefile.PL to ignore that requirement.
