  No, the problem is not solved, because this packages ar named
  "perl" an *NOT* "perl5". If I try to install package
  "sysutils_1.3.6.1.deb" I get Dependency-Problem-Message, because on
  my system is no package named "perl5" installed only named "perl"
  (Version: 5.004.04-7.0.1).
  I think there is a failure in the Dependency-Definiton of the
  package "sysutils_1.3.6.1.deb" - the dependency have to be "perl (>=
  ???)" and not "perl5" ?!
