If you're not counting on some sort of optimization based on alignment why do a string copy at all?
while ( *str++ != '|' ); date[0] = str[4]; date[1] = str[5]; date[2] = str[6]; date[3] = str[7]; date[4] = str[0]; date[5] = str[1]; date[6] = str[2]; date[7] = str[3];
Or am I not remembering C correctly?

    You are correct the strncpy is superfluous. The string terminator is missing but newSVpv() has been called with an explicit length so it doesn't matter.

    All in all I would prefer jcwren's methodology.
