  It's the same as 2.1.4.

  Yes.  We'll take a look at that for 2.1.7.

  Barring that, grab a copy of 2.1.6, and replace src/modules/rlm_perl
with a copy from a previous version.  Re-build, and install.  You'll get
the Perl that you like, along with the rest of the fixes in 2.1.6.

  The fixes && features in 2.1.6 are worth taking the time to do that.

  And lots more.  Wait for 2.1.7, there are some interesting features
going in.
