Sorry, you're calling deluser from the purge target of the postrm;
dependencies do *not* ensure the availability of any non-essential packages
at this stage, for the same reason that you have to check for the
availability of deluser itself. :)

The only fix for this bug is to implement a graceful fallback; preferably,
this should be done in cooperation with deluser itself, so that deluser
gives a distinguishing error message if perl isn't installed.
