Could you post the output of 'dpkg -l perl\*'? If any of them are in bad
states (normally indicated by one of the first two letters of a line
being in uppercase) then configuring it with 'dpkg --configure' or
reinstalling it may help.

Also, make sure you don't have a strange version of perl somewhere else
on the $PATH while running dselect.
