psortb, libalgorithm-svm-perl, and other missing dependencies

Hi Andreas

Back in June you were trying to package psortb and faced some issues.
At the time I mentioned that psortb was using a vendorised and
modified implementation of Algorithm::SVM (PSort::SVMLoc).  In
addition, they were also dependent on the original implementation [1]:

I have just finished sorting out the last issue with
libalgorithm-svm-perl in the perl team and asked to have it uploaded.

I noticed that psortb is now on sid.  However, that package seems to
be broken.  Not only it is missing libalgorithm-svm-perl it seems to
be missing a bunch of other dependencies.  I have enabled autopkgtest
on it [2, 3] which will test each of the modules and will list the
missing modules.
