Yup ...

Thanks for the confirmation!

Sounds plausible at first sight.

The interesting thing is that non of the parrot-* packages seems to
depend on libperl5.X or perlapi-*, so it wasn't binNMUd.

Requesting a binNMU now would probably help, but it doesn't seem to
be really future-proof.

Looking at the parrot* packages the interesting thing I see is:

Package: parrot-devel
Version: 3.3.0-1
Architecture: i386
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4), libparrot3.3.0 (>= 3.3.0), libreadline6 (>= 6.0), parrot, libparrot-dev, perl

i.e. this is an arch:any package and depends on perl but not on
libperl* or perlapi*.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, or what's the correct way to
proceed; but maybe this gives a hint ...
