Debconf troubles


I've been having problems with Debconf on my 2 weeks old potato system. It won't install.
Dpkg gives me the following message:

Setting up debconf (0.2.79) ...
Can't locate Data/Dumper.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/5.004/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.004
/usr/local/lib/site_perl/i386-linux /usr/local/lib/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5
/usr/lib/perl5/i386-linux/5.004 /usr/lib/perl5/5.004/i386-linux .) at
/usr/lib/perl5/Debian/DebConf/ConfigDb.pm line 218.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
/usr/lib/perl5/Debian/DebConf/ConfigDb.pm line 218.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/share/debconf/frontend line 9.

(plus the usual dpkg errors)

This prevents me from installing the cvs and lynx packages, and probably
others. I'm no perl expert, but it would seem that whichever package
contains Data/Dumper.pm is missing. Any pointers as to what to do about this?
Which packages do I have to install (assuming it's not a debconf bug)?
