It would be better to fix lintian so that it recognizes this case.  That's
going to be a little tricky as long as the invocation of Perl is hidden
behind a makefile variable, which also seems fairly pointless (does anyone
really want to build these packages with some other path to Perl).  If
that's changed, I think I can fix this by changing the lintian regex from
'\t\s*perl\s*' to '(\t|\|\|)\s*perl\*'.

I suppose I could recognize $(PERL) the same as perl for the purposes of
this check, though.  It's not like anyone is going to use the makefile
variable for something else.
