Thanks for the corrections.  I made the mistake of not double checking the
build with pbuilder this time.  However, when I build the new version is
seems to show the same error for Pod::Simple so that should be included in
the Build-Depends as well.  My question is if the same packages need to be
included in the Depends: as well.  After all if they are necessary to
build the package, perhaps they are also necessary for its execution.  Is
there an automatic way of getting these included or is a manual insertion

Hmmm... Usually, but not always. Sometimes, a module is required for
building (i.e. libmodule-build-perl, libmodule-install-perl) or for
running the tests (i.e. my libuser-simple-perl module build-depends on
libdbd-xbase), but are not needed during regular operation - But
usually a build-dependency in Perl becomes a standard dependency.

You can just grep for the module names in lib/*, but that's also not

It turns out that the ${perl:Depends} entry was in the control file but it does not generate any dependencies. I will investigate further.
