Our modern distributions contain explicit symlinks for compatibility with known
binary compatible versions of perl, so stuff built with that kind of
out-of-the-way RPATH are not likely to break unless the symlinks are explicitly
removed in a later version of the perl package.

I don't know why it was done this way originally.  Maybe to allow multiple
versions of perl to be installed simultaneously and avoid links from using the
wrong libperl.so?  If this is the case, then it probably made sense during the
transitions from earlier perl major versions.

RPATH to the full path of the libperl.so that was available during build time
seems to be what everything else that links against libperl.so does?
