[oi-dev] 2218 update perl512 with oracle-userland patches (actually perl512 to 5.12.4)

I've provided an update to 5.12.4 instead of the Oracle patches to 5.123,
although actually performed that build and tested it before rolling forward
to 5.12.4 and stripping the patches. The relevant perldata shows the diff
to be minimal, and I believe two of the three changes would otherwise be
provided by the Oracle patches:

http://search.cpan.org/dist/perl-5.12.4/pod/perl5124delta.pod

https://www.illumos.org/issues/2218

https://bitbucket.org/buffyg/illumos-userland-2218/compare/..buffyg/illumos-userland

Since there are some pretty serious issues with perl5.10, I'd like to
suggest a follow-on change to un-comment the default links and make this
the default perl in OI 151, which has been done previously for illumian.
Not sure if a separate package is available to manage the default links,
but I believe igork had suggested something like that on [email protected] at some
point. If such a change has already been committed, it should have some
mechanics that I'd like to use to split the defaults out of the
gcc44-runtime package.
