Perl 5.14.1 package no longer "provides" virtual perl packages. Please remove dependency on perl-test-harness, with it one cannot update Arch unless manually ignoring or removing parts of working system (in my case perl-test-simple is start of quite a big dependency chain leading at least 4 packages deep):

:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: perl-test-simple: requires perl-test-harness
[giniu@raven3 ~]$ pacman -Ss perl-test-harness
[giniu@raven3 ~]$ pacman -Qs perl-test-harness
local/perl 5.12.3-1 (base)
