Not it doesn't cause any problem but if perl-5.005 is available, it's in
order to be used ... :-)

The problem is that perl-5.005 conflicts with perl which was
important in slink.

The dependencies should be correct since when doing apt-get install
perl-5.005, the package gets correctly installed and only the perl 
fake package is removed (and the old binary packages that depended on
perl are beeing upgraded to the new one that depend on perl-5.005).
