This is a list of packages which depend on perl-510:

(you can get it by something like
pkg search -r 'depend::*runtime/perl-510*'|awk ' { print $4;}' |cut -d @ 
-f 1 |sort|uniq
or similar command)

1) Each package which is absent from oi-userland ( 
http://github.com/OpenIndiana/oi-userland ) should be added there, 
possibly modified to use perl 5.16 and tested (package dependencies also 
should be checked).
For JDS packages it sometimes mean that they should be splitted in 
several smaller packages (according to natural boundaries).
2) We should ask Andrew Stormont to RTI his patches for building 
illumos-gate with GCC-compiled perl 
(https://www.illumos.org/issues/3900). IIRC, his patches are ready for 
integration, but still are not in the gate.
3) It seems we also need 
4) We have to modify perl 5.10 and 5.16 so that /usr/perl5/{bin,man,pod} 
links point to perl 5.16.
5) create runtime-perl-516-module-sun-solaris.mf manifest with manifest 
for Perl 5.16, recompile illumos-gate with perl5.16 (add to illumos.sh 
export PERL_VERSIONS=”5.10 5.16”)
6) Add perl 5.18 and modules for perl 5.18.

Strictly speaking, steps 1, 2-5 and 6 are not closely related, I mean, 
you can do it in any order. But I'm not eager to support 3 perl versions 
in oi-userland simultaneously.
