no perl 5.12 in mandriva 2010.1

as announced previously, i did some further testing wrt perl 5.12.0 and mandriva. after having installed it, i've been able to use urpmi and compile various binary perl modules against 5.12.

however, decision has been taken not to push perl 5.12 in spring release. potential for havoc is too important - especially since it's used by many core tools. it'll have to wait after 2010.1 is out... but since all bits & pieces are ready to be pushed, it's now just a matter of time...
