Yes, it's annoying. Or, rather, it was.

If you've got perl 5.8.8 you can just use that. Supposedly it'll work
slower but if this is not a production system, there's nothing you have
to worry about.

And later if you get to some setup where you definitely want
non-threaded perl on debian, you can compile perl + modules manually,
no problem. Since the modules already exists as debian packages, you can
simply run "apt-get build-dep lib<module_name>-perl" to install dependencies
for some module, and then you can build as usual with 

  perl -MCPAN -e 'install "Module::Name"'
