Bug#586856: dh-make-perl: not finding Config.pm dependency

Package: dh-make-perl
Version: 0.68-1
Severity: normal

Building Errno::AnyString from cpan as

    dh-make-perl --verbose --requiredeps --build Errno-AnyString-1.03

apparently fails to find the Config.pm module,

    - Config  not found in any package

This is with my own generated apt-file contents, so perhaps I've caused
it myself, but ~/.dh-make-perl/Contents.cache has entries

    "Config" => "perl-modules",
    "Config.pm" => "perl-base",
    "Config.pod" => "perl",

which would suggest it's successfully crunched to that stage.
