    How should i do ?
    Find out what version of is trying to get loaded,
    Report the bug to your vendor so they install a working , say one from PathTools
    Install a working Cwd from PathTools yourself
    Install a new perl in your homedir (or usr/local whatever), a version from this decade that is supported by perl5porters

        # perl Makefile.PL
