I went through the list of conflicts and made a temporary @set of packages
for emerge to re-install. Worked like a charm. A number of the conflicts
are things that should be in a "preserved libraries" type of list, they are
actually quite able to rebuild with the new perl version.
I have, however, had to back off newest versions of sddm and chromium
(browser) due to some performance failures: /etc/portage/package.keywords
is your friend!
