I think this is another "Great Perl Upgrade" with massive associated breakage.
For now, I'm holding all of the perl packages on my system, including many that
depend on "perl" (i.e. the new perl packages), and keeping the new ones out
(perl-modules, perl, etc.).  At some point I'll upgrade everything, when I have
the time and patience to go through all of the dependency cycles in dselect,
changing the vast lists of - to +. :-(

The upgrade went decently on an i386 system yesterday, but of course, that's
