This message does belong on debian-user, but it's certainly not Progeny's
fault.  debconf breaks under Perl 5.6.  And a few Woody packages are
beginning to require 5.6...

Why the heck isn't debconf written in C?  This happens to me ALL the
time (well, every other month or so).  Something as fundamental as
debconf really should not have so many dependencies.
