Yes, Debian 3.0r2 has just been released today and the perl-modules
in woody is now 5.6.1-8.3, not 5.6.1-7 :-)

If (as I imagine) you are trying to provide a consistent set of packages,
you might want to take perl-modules from http://snapshot.debian.net instead,
where you should be able to get the exact version which matches the
currently available hurd-i386 version of perl in ftp.debian.org.
