I got around the problem by using :

  emerge --backtrack=30 -pvtD perl perl-Archive-Tar perl-Carp 
perl-Compress-Raw-Zlib perl-CPAN-Meta-Requirements perl-Data-Dumper 
perl-ExtUtils-CBuilder perl-ExtUtils-Install perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker 
perl-ExtUtils-Manifest perl-ExtUtils-ParseXS perl-File-Spec perl-Getopt-Long 
perl-IO perl-Locale-Maketext perl-Perl-OSType perl-Scalar-List-Utils 
perl-Test-Harness perl-Text-ParseWords

It wants to remerge Exiftool Imagemagick Cups-filters Graphite2
& also some further Perl pkgs & it wants to downgrade (G)Vim.
That much wb ok, but it also wants to update Poppler & therefore LO
& I don't feel like doing the last at the moment ( 65 min  last time).

What you suggested is fairly standard & I've done it in the past,
but thanks for prompting me.  Thanks to the other respondents too.

Perl can stay where it is till LO 5.2 arrives in Portage :
in fact, isn't it a bit slow appearing ?
