Perl5 wrapper port...usage...?

So as I understand, the perl_select port is obsolete, right? 

I’ve got perl5 wrapper port as well as the perl5.24 variant installed.
I’ve also got various other perl versions installed so my perl installation list looks like:

  perl5 @5.24.2_0+perl5_24 (active)
  perl5.16 @5.16.3_4 (active)
  perl5.18 @5.18.4_3 (active)
  perl5.22 @5.22.4_0 (active)
  perl5.24 @5.24.2_0 (active)

with all the various default perl programs symlinked to perl5.24. If I wanted to switch the default 
perl5.x to any of my other perl versions, what is the mechanism for doing so now that 
perl_select no longer recognizes any installed perl?
