./perl/bin/perl: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ./perl/bin/perl)

Can't install the latest Perl on Oracle Unbreakable Linux

cd ActivePerl-
[xxx ActivePerl-]$ ./perl/bin/perl
./perl/bin/perl: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ./perl/bin/perl)

At the moment have installed libc 2.12 and yum update tells me that it is the latest version available.

Can't find libc 2.14 in the repos. Could somebody tell where to get it?

Upgrading while keeping all your settings/modules intact

I discovered that my current AS perl, 5.12, is no longer ppm'able [without a business license] so I'm upgrading to 5.16. I'm worried about how that 'upgrade' should/will go. right now perl is installed in c:\perl64. Can I just install the new 5.16 in the same directory and will it basically leave my installed modules and other such along [perhaps needing a big update via ppm, but still there]? Or will I run into problems?

"Perl Command Line Interpreter has stopped working" when running PPM.

Can't get the PPM GUI to run. This is on Win 7 64-bit. Tried reinstalling 5.16.2 64-bit, with the same result. PPM command line seems to work. Just the GUI won't run. Tried 5.16.2 x86 and this launches the GUI fine.

The following is in the event log:
