Can I ask why?

Perl 5.10 is the latest version of Perl available and supported by SUSE
for SLES11 SP3. Even the openSUSE Build Service doesn't have a later
version available.

Wherever you got perl-base-5.12.3-11.14.1.i586.rpm you'll need to grab
perl-5.12.3-11.14.1.i586.rpm plus other perl-*-5.12.3-11.14.1.i586.rpm
files. Note that you won't be supported by SUSE should you have any issues.

What's your timescale for requiring Perl 5.12? I ask because it's
possible that SLES12 will include a newer version of Perl.
