Do you have a /usr/bin/dpkg-scansources file ? I really can't
understand that since /usr/bin/ is certainly in the PATH (otherwise
apt or dpkg-scanpackages wouldn't be found too). The other solution is 
that dpkg-scansources calls a missing interpreter but if you
don't have /usr/bin/perl then YACS wouldn't work at all ...

No. When a file has to be included, the perl code looks if it's a link or
a file and read the link and make a hard link on the real file. However
the code is a bit tricky and there may be problems ... but I don't think
that it's your problem here.
