Does anyone understand this dpkg (apt?) error message?

A user reported the following bug against autoconf.  I don't
understand the error message any more than the user does.  Does
anyone have any idea what the problem with the autoconf (or
other) package might be?

Subject: Bug#153807: autoconf upgrade problem potato->woody
Date: Mon, 22 Jul 2002 12:02:32 +1000 (EST)
From: Brett Nuske <s2006700@student.rmit.edu.au>

Package: autoconf
Version: 2.53-2

When trying to upgrade from woody to potato I get
the following error message:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  autoconf: Depends: perl (> 5.005) but 5.6.1-7 is to be installed
E: Sorry, broken packages

This doesnt make sense especially since the perl version
to be installed _is_ greater than what I currently have.

See ya
