Did you look at the post installation message, when you upgraded perl.

It should have something like this:


The directories /usr/lib/perl5/current, /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current,
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1, and /usr/share/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1
have been removed from @INC.
The script/binary directories are now /usr/bin/*_perl instead of
/usr/lib/perl5/*_perl/bin which will be eventually removed.
