chronic doesn't work without perl-ipc-run, which is only an optional dependency.
I propose moving it to the required dependencies to avoid this, since chronic just
crashes with a (for a non-Perl programmer) non-descriptive error message if
perl-ipc-run isn't installed. It took me a few minutes to find out what's wrong.

Package version is 0.47-1.

Steps to reproduce:
* Remove perl-ipc-run (or don't have it installed).
* Try to run chronic.
This task depends upon
