Yes, it will breaks lots of things. Anything that has any XS components
needs to be recompiled. They should depend on the package perl5.005.
This will actually be a virtual package so that versioned dependencies
will still work with (perl >= 5.005.04). This dependency will still
work when perl5.006 comes out. This was discussed I think back in
December but the refresh is good.
