I think you'll find that the one in /usr/lib is not. It'd be interesting
to see the date that file was created.
(For the debian-perl readers: This is a problem that is cropping up with
several people, they all seem to have a /usr/lib/perl5/base.pm that does
not beling to any package, and dates from perl 5.004 or so (lacks a
VERSION, so it's hard to tell). It breaks debconf badly. Here we see the
problem with letting local installs shodow core. :-/)
I don't know if it's coming from CPAN, or local mistakes, or a badly
broken old perl package that doesn't remove it on upgrade.)
