Why do you have /usr/lib/libperl.* at all? It's a bad idea to have it in the 
common path if you have more than one perl installed on the same system.

Yes, you always need to rebuild mod_perl with the new version of perl.

All I'm worried about is that you may have too many perls installed under the 
same tree or on the same system, and when you use them they get intermixed 
causing weird problems. So I'd suggest to completely nuke (after backuping) 
/usr/local/lib/perl5 and any other places you may have remains of perl 
including libperl.* and install a fresh perl, rebuild mod_perl and then give 
it a try.
