No, POSIX is in perl-5.005-base. But some files (autosplit.ix at least)
are missing.

POSIX is needed for the i18n of perl script from the base system (adduser
comes to my mind)

Well, debconf will go in base so the Data::Dumper module must go in base.

If such a bug is not yet filled yes. And explain to Darren, that they
should be corrected rapidly in order to let people test further
the new boot floppies. I can NMU the perl packages in order to correct
this if Darren can't do it ...
