That’d be becaause they’re hard links.
“suidperl” will always be the “current” version of Perl. Given that
mod_perl is version-dependent, I’d use the other one instead.

Edit /etc/permissions to set the appropriate permissions; SuSE 7.x is more
paranoid than earlier releases and resets permissions on suid files not in
/etc/permissions whenever /sbin/SuSEconfig runs. (Which would be less of a
problem if it actually honored PERMISSION_SECURITY in /etc/rc.config so you
could add the correct permissions to /etc/permissions.local and not have
them be overwritten when aaa_base is upgraded…)
