Just a note that this is going to be a blocker for Perl 5.28 transition,
which is expected to happen in the next few months.
debconf Build-Depends: libqtgui4-perl which is going to need a binNMU for
Perl 5.28 but FTBFS because of this bug.
Dear Qt/KDE maintainers: do you think qt4-perl should still be kept alive,
or should the support in debconf be finally removed (see #629405) ?
I see there's a prospective alternative KDE debconf frontend (#631769)
but that seems stalled unfortunately.
Copying the debconf maintainers as well.
