I did search for package containing files in /usr/(lib|share)/perl5.
Most problematic packages were already renamed, I only filed a bug
report for gtk2-ex-formfactory-perl  (already fixed).
I also identified a package that was renamed in Debian, but where the
old package has not been removed from Ubuntu yet .
There are also the packages
ebox -- common library used by eBox platform modules
libebox -- eBox - Common Library
I cannot see much of a difference from the description. Also libebox
should probably be called libebox-perl as well.
