Bug#1201: perl doesn't know about includes
Perl should be able to generate .ph files just from the includes package,
but needs the source package instead. (If includes doesn't provide
enough for perl to work with then this is a bug in includes instead.)
Roll on virtual packages...

If you are going to install the "C" compiler or other development
software, you should install the "includes" package, or the "source"
package, but not both.
`Available' version of package includes, where different:
# dpkg --status perl

You don't seem to have a kernel source tree.
This will prevent much of the functionality
involving Perl header (.ph) files from working
properly. You can get this by installing
the 'source' debian package or installing it yourself.
Once you have done this, you can re-run this script
as 'perlconfig' as root.
