	I just installed Debian on my laptop at work and found this
problem.  I've never seen it on the other machines here, but it appears
that some package-install sripts look for perl to be in /bin/perl which it
isn't.  Link /usr/bin/perl to /bin/perl, and re-configure those packages
or re-install them.
