Bug#1199: postinst needs perl, but no perl dependency listed

> Description:
> When I install wu-ftpd while perl isn't installed, the postinst script
> fails. The postinst script calls the perl script /usr/sbin/addftpuser.
> Suggested fix:
> perl should be listed in the DEPENDS: line in the debian.control file.

Are you running the dpkg base?  If you are, perl should be there in
/bin/perl.  If you are not, then this does bring back the old problem
of "Wouldn't it be nice to support others." Debian-Devel people, would
a solution to the problem be a dependency on either perl or a virtual
"base" package?
