perl in Build-Depends-Indep

Many packages seem to list perl in Build-Depends-Indep. That seems to be
a bug in many cases since debian/rules clean in MakeMaker using packages
will use perl in unclean package directories (make distclean ->
distcheck -> "$(PERLRUN) "-MExtUtils::Manifest=fullcheck" -e fullcheck")

So perl should probably be moved to Build-Depends in these cases.

Or am I missing something?
