I would recommend against changing the system perl on any machine.  Leave 
/usr/bin/perl alone and don't overwrite /System/Library/Perl.  Its likely
to cause pain and suffering and pain.

If you want a newer Perl, install it into /usr/local/perl5.x.y and put a 
symlink in /usr/local/bin.  Configure it so that /Library/Perl is added when
it asks you for extra directories for @INC.
