Ah, thanks for that.  My previous attempt with 5.14.0 made the same 
changes to 1 & 3, but didn't change 2 which is why it obviously failed 
for me.  I don't see any problems with the proposed instructions; I 
assume you did a full chapter 6 test suite run to verify it?  I think 
it's Glibc & Coreutils that are particularly picky about the Perl 
installation, if I recall correctly.
