perl-5.14.2 switch

Just been trying the 5.14.2 that's was available in setup.exe as of
6th June 2012 and the dependencies for LWP are quite broken.

So far I found the following missing dependencies for libwww:-
Warning: prerequisite File::Listing 6 not found.
Warning: prerequisite HTTP::Daemon 6 not found.
Warning: prerequisite WWW::RobotRules 6 not found.
Warning: prerequisite HTTP::Negotiate 6 not found.

Although this may be expected behaviour, I wanted to highlight
the fact that quite a few packages require perl yet have hardcoded
dependencies on 5.10.x so setup ends up messing up the install
when ever its used if you let it "correct" dependencies :(
