This is a problem which has come up a couple of times in the past. I
believe that the files in question are part of an old (pre-split) perl
package (probably slink era) left behind in an upgrade by dpkg.
I would strongly suggest that you run the following commands to verify
that no other cruft has been left behind which may cause further
$ find /usr/lib/perl5 | sort -o /tmp/disk
$ grep -h /usr/lib/perl5/ /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list | sort -uo /tmp/dpkg
$ comm -3 /tmp/disk /tmp/dpkg
