I've done the same thing without experiencing problems.
%rpm -q perl
Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 8 subversion 8) configuration:
osname=linux, osvers=2.6.20-1.3002.fc6xen, archname=i386-linux-
uname='linux xenbuilder1.fedora.redhat.com 2.6.20-1.3002.fc6xen #1

Perhaps a reinstall of perl?
