installing packages: can't locate file/glob.pm

Hello all. I'm trying to install the mime-support package and am getting
the following error. I recently installed perl-5.6, and also have
perl-5.004 and perl-5.005 installed, as various packages require different
perl versions. I'm running Woody with latest upgrades as brought on by
'apt-get update'.

Unpacking mime-support (from .../mime-support_3.9-1_all.deb) ...
Setting up mime-support (3.9-1) ...
Can't locate File/Glob.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/lib/perl5/5.6/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.6 /usr/local/lib/site_perl/i386-linux /usr/local/lib/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.005/i386-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.005 .) at /usr/sbin/update-mime line 48.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/sbin/update-mime line 48.
dpkg: error processing mime-support (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Any ideas as-to what's broken would be appreciated. 
dpkg --search glob.pm' returns no matches.
