dselect treats Recommands like Depends. This is probably a misfeature...
apt-get and capt don't have this problem.
Notice that all the problems are with a "X recommends Y"

You're using a broken mirror (or an arch that doesn't have all packages
properly ported--if you're not using an i386, please say so and disregard
All those "does not appear to be available" are available in unstable on
http.us.debian.org, and presumably the other mirrors as well. The perl
conflictions are because of the Great Perl Upgrade, you need to update
whichever packages suggest/recommend/depend on perl to the latest version.
