Found the solution.
I downloaded the most recent release from the perl homepage,
compiled that and installed in a separate directory (/opt/perl),
created a link $HOME/bin/perl->[my new perl]. And all went
like a charm.

Probably a good choice in 5.X to remove perl from base system
and have it as a package/port.
