If your package contains a binary perl modules then it has to depend on a
specific perl. And that's the case for libpgperl :

Of course there's something that requires a particular version of perl.
The binary module is (and must be) compiled with perl-5.005 which
does mean that it will only work with perl-5.005 (and it's de facto
installed in versionned directory whihw won't allow perl-5.004 to find it)
