Can you please verify if the log messages go away once you have  
installed libperl4-corelibs-perl on your system? The package is  
available for wheezy.

Once you have confirmed that I will provide another slbackup revision  
in experimental.

However, the current status of slbackup is that an update of the  
package for wheezy is not possible. For wheezy, slbackup has to be  
provided via the D-E archive. (Long story [1]). I'll keep the package  
up-to-date in experimental for now, so someone with D-E upload rights  
can grab it from there (after closure of this bug).
