Please disregard this question. Apparently, using my package manager to uninstall the previous version of perl was not as effective as a brute force 'rm -f'.

    I'll not disregard your question, for the sake of future readers.

    The error comes from a module compiled against threaded Perl while your Perl installation is not threaded (probably because you recompiled it). The solution is to recompile the module against the new Perl.

    (I had a few such problems when toggling the threads flag on Gentoo.)

      Thank you so much for not disregarding the quesion... I had recompiled Perl without threading and couldn't figure out what the problem was until I read your response! Thanks again!
