  perl -MMath::BigFloat -e 'print $INC{"Math/BigFloat.pm"},"\n";'

Looks like it's in the Debian perl package to me.

As Math-BigInt-1.49.tar.gz includes both Math::BigInt &
Math::BigFloat, why not just include that in math-numbercruncher?
Rename Math to Math_ and the new versions won't mask the installed

Alternately, you could just ITP libmath-bigint-perl :)
