I didn’t seem Tomas giving you any specific advice, so I don’t
understand how to answer your question.

You only need to force-install Scalar::Util, which is available
from the CPAN separately from perl. You don’t need to reinstall
your entire perl.

Complain to your packager/distributor that they shipped a broken
perl. Anyone who packages a perl of newer vintage than mid-2002,
without Scalar::Util’s XS part, is doing it wrong.
