There is a separate mailing list regarding the packaging of the perl interpreter, I am sure they would welcome the help.
I've looked into packaging the perl interpreter a bit, for Maemo for example. It is non-trivial. I think you'll find those who currently package the perl interpreter for debian to be quite helpful and highly knowledgeable. Also note that the debian perl package and attendant perl-modules package, deviate from what is considered 'perl-core' from upstream.
