What I had to do after an upgrade from Sarge to Sid is re-install the
locales package (it was removed, and installing it conflicted with
base-config, but who cares?) then if the message from perl persists
re-run dpkg-reconfigure locales until /etc/environment looks good.

For me the following is good:

 % cat /etc/environment
