yeah that was discussed on -devel the other day, the problem is some
of the perl packages are archetecture independent, so they need no
compiling and are instantly installed on all archetectures, but the
binary packages failed to compile (or compile slowly) for powerpc and
maybe another arch or two, that rather severely borks the dependencies
until the binary packages get built.

it should clear up in a few days.
