Same problem here. After trying to install it with dpkg, I runned the postinst
script manually with the 'configure' parameter. Then I edited the
/var/lib/dpkg/status file, in the perl package section changed the line
install ok not-configured
install ok installed
and deleted the line which read
configured version: previous_package_version_here (or something like that)
This kludge fooled dpkg into thinking that perl was ok (and I think it really
is ok, haven't had any problems) and I could move on to the other packages.
My excuse for doing it is that I don't know deb package internals and didn't
have the previous libc6 perl pack. anymore.
