Looking at the source, I don't think the newer ExtUtils::CBuilder version
is really needed, and trying to build it with just the perl-modules one
seems to confirm this.
(In fact, it looks like there's no point in having the newer
libextutils-cbuilder-perl as a separate package at all, judging by
the upstream changelog between 0.21 and 0.24. The Hurd and KFreeBSD
fixes are in perl-modules too.)
