If you aren't totally settled on Debian, I suggest you give Gentoo a
try.  Perl is installed with threads or not by setting a single flag,
and there is an ebuild for interchange although it isn't yet in
portage.  'emerge interchange' installs interchange along with all
dependencies, including perl modules.  It works really really well.
