New hiera with old puppet

I'm trying to get hiera 3.x to work with Puppet 3.7.2 (which comes with hiera 1.3.4). The main reason being what I want to get deep_merge knockout behavior working via hiera.

However, installing the hiera gem via

gem install hiera

Results in an update command-line interface version of hiera but puppet keeps using the 1.3.4 installation. I cannot for the life of me find the configuration setting which tells puppet what hiera to use.

If anyone has any clue I'd be forever grateful.

Yours kindly,
