This was already discussed, but I'll just note this is #328305 on perl.

You're missing a build-depends on netbase, it's needed at least for
IO::Socket::INET->new(Proto => 'tcp',...)
as that does a getprotobyname('tcp') which consults /etc/protocols.
This is #185244 on perl. It was recently discussed a bit on debian-devel:
BTW, you probably also want to build-depend and at least recommend
libio-socket-ssl-perl as well.
