libmemoize-perl doesn't appear to be part of Debian. It probably comes
from one of the third-party sources listed above; I suggest you use
'apt-cache policy libmemoize-perl' to find out which, then use
'apt-cache show libmemoize-perl' to find out who the maintainer is and
ask him/her about it.

Cheers,
