search the available packages file. the easiest way to do this is with
grep-available from the grep-dctrl package.
# apt-get install grep-dctrl
# grep-available -P gd -s Package | grep perl
looks like there are several related packages.
as a general rule, perl module packages are lib<SOMETHING>-perl. there
are exceptions, but not many (file a bug report if you find any).
failing that, use dselect or one of the console apt utilities to select
packages for installation - you can read the package descriptions to
find out what they are before installing.
