It looks like some perl thing is trying to keep the perl at the OLD level.

(you have plenty of rf packages, which is rpmforge ... those are 
NON-CentOS pacakges. I am not saying those are the problem, just 
pointing out your original statement is in error where you list only one 
NON-CentOS package)

First, do you have x86_64 and i386 perl installed ... if so, do you need 
them?

This should tell you if you have both versions installed:
rpm -q perl

Maybe try this (all one line):

yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=updates --enablerepo=base 
--enablerepo=extras upgrade perl
