cPanel should already work with 5.10 perl for the external perl if you are using CentOS 6.

For the internal perl, that would be updated at some point during the perl rpm project, which was discussed at the following location:


The internal version is used by compiled code. This is limited to perl 5.6.2 and the modules installed to /usr/local/cpanel/perl. The long term goal is to switch the compiled version to use the same perl version as non-compiled code. That was not attainable for this release.
