Don't file a bug. There's already _at least_ 5 or 6 bugs about this
problem in the BTS...

There are just two wrong linebreaks in the postinst script.

Just correct /var/lib/dpkg/info/vim.postinst (or maybe vim-perl.postinst
in your case) so that the update-alternatives call is exactly one
line (use '\'), e.g.:

update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/$i $i \
/usr/bin/vim 120 \
--slave /usr/share/man/man1/$i.1.gz $i.1.gz \

Then call apt-get install vim-perl again, and it should install fine.
