perl-modules contains the modules included in the perl tarball. *You
cannot seperate these from the rest of the 'source: perl' packages.*

The only solution to what you describe is to seperately package the
relevant perl modules you require.  If you need Test::Harness, package
it; this is exactly what others have done with CGI et al.
