Hmm.  For some reason, it wants perl-5.005-base to be on that line as
well.  I'm not quite sure why.
>apt-get install perl-5.005 perl-5.005-base
works correctly.

I'm not quite sure this happens though.  perl-5.005 should just pull
perl-5.005-base in automatically.  I've cc'ed apt@packages.debian.org
for an answer.  I've also included the appropriate lines out of the
Packages file.

The line in question was:
deb http://www.daft.com/pub/debian/experimental ./

Description: Larry Wall's Practical Extracting and Report Language.
 An interpreted scripting language, known among some as "Unix's
 Swiss Army Chainsaw".
 Perl is optimized for scanning arbitrary text files and system
 administration. It has built-in extended regular expression matching
 and replacement, a dataflow mechanism to improve security with
 setuid scripts and is extendable via modules that can interface
 to C libraries.
 Note that this supplements perl-base, providing the full Perl

 A scripting language with delusions of full language-hood, Perl is used

 This is a stripped down Perl with only essential libraries.  To make

 supplements this one.
