I see the perl problem when I turn on debug in cdebootstrap. I don't
know where it comes from since I took care to use the right perl

Also when running dpkg in the chroot the version conflict doesn't show
anymore. But I think thats a known bug.

Is it working? All Depends there? There are a bunch of packages not in
the Packages file. Primary reasons are brokenness or that I never
tried to add them.
