1) You do not want to run 5.6.1, you want to run whatever is the latest Perl,
   as long as it is non-threaded

2) You can't remove or hide system Perl installation (too many things depend
   on it). What you can do, however, is install non-threaded Perl in a different
   location (say, /usr/local/) and then inside Interchange source run

   /usr/local/bin/perl Makefile.PL
   make && make test && make install
