You're not thinking about perl in the debian way, and that is your whole
problem. What is the point of making a bundle on a debian system?

That is because debconf does not include a module by that name (duh), and
because I strip the pod docs to save space on the base system. All
user-level docs are in debconf-doc; the pod docs are in the source
package and are only useful to people who are extending debconf and
would need the source package anyway.
Debconf is a bad example here; there is absoltely no reason why perldoc
will not work on debian perl module packages that have pod
documentation in the binary package.
