Two suggestions. Pick which URL you want as the definitive version and:

1/ Include a canonical tag pointing to that URL (on both versions of the site)

<link rel="canonical" href="http://perldancer.org">

2/ In Google Webmaster Tools (every site that cares about SEO should
be registered with GWT) you can tell Google which domain to use (gear
icon -> settings -> preferred domain).

You can put redirections in place as well if you want - but these two
actions will take care of it.
