Well, it's a problem other people might encounter when upgrading. I'm not
sure if we have a document on upgrading from previous releases; if we do,
this should go in there.

This is probably the cause. I looked into perl_5.003.07-10 (in stable), and
it does not contain usr/bin/perl directly, but rather usr/bin/perl.dist (a
link to usr/bin/perl5.00307), which is "mv"ed to usr/bin/perl when

So it looks like something went wrong with the configure step.
"/var/lib/dpkg/info/perl.postinst configure" would probably have fixed it.
