Yes, after tasksel is the network installation, so you're currently running
straight into the mess that's called Perl transition:
That's something inevitable for Debian Ports until we get a testing release.

Yes, currently quite a number of packages are falling behind for ia64,
especially since Ruby upstream dropped ia64 support and so far there hasn't

I have started the work and I can share it with anyone.
