While people ponder what the difference between the sid and p-u setups
is that causes this (or, more precisely, doesn't cause it in sid), as an
experiment we've told wanna-build to ignore the installability checker
issue on amd64 (as the versioned dependency from perl to perl-modules is
otherwise met in Jessie) and try building the package anyway. If that
works then we can try other architectures as well.
It's not an ideal long-term solution but will hopefully at least unblock
