It is not that hard to build the debian src package.  It might be a 
quicker fix to make a small *.deb repository for IC rather than to try
to get a different version of perl into debian.

I'd also suggest that if you are not comfortable with above, you are
asking for a world of hurt trying to maintain a non-standard perl
in the middle of a packaged system.

FWIW, minivend 4.03 runs just fine with debian's stock threaded perl.  :-)
