install perl package before.

Before bo there used to be a package of perl marked essential (and
therefore not removable). AFAIK there will be one also in hamm.
I don't know for what reasons this perl package wasn't build as
essential in bo. This make possible for someone to see this error.
I have not yet understood what path is needed to get it: you are
installing things by hand and have not yet installed perl, or you
deselected perl in dselect?
