Bug#488148: findimagedupes: missing perlapi dependency

Package: findimagedupes
Version: 2.7-2
Severity: serious

This package contains a binary Perl module,


but doesn't depend on perlapi-$Config{version} as required by section
4.4.2 of the Perl policy.


Using ${perl:Depends} and dh_perl is the recommended way to generate
the dependency. I see dh_perl can be told about private library paths;
I don't know how to get this through cdbs however.

Having this would have prevented #479731, as the package would have
got binNMU'd for Perl 5.10 like all the ~300 other packages with binary
Perl modules.

This applies to the sid version (2.11-1) too, but reporting at the
version in lenny so that the bug doesn't block the testing transition.
