For what it's worth, looking at the C code embeded into the Perl
modules, this seems to be the result of a swig wrapping.  I'm a
bit unsure how the relinking is supposed to occur in that kind
of cases (maybe it's not too hard, I just haven't dived into
this sort of thing yet).  But yes, I understand that avoiding
convenience copies in the source code is definitely wanted by
the Debian Policy.

Kind Regards,
