The Perl modules are installed to /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/ instead of /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current/
and insodoing the symlink 5.8.8 -> current is turned into a real directory containing a buggy symlink (after perl update):
see for a similar problem with git.

A solution is to call perl Makefile.PL (with the usual parameters for perl packages) after make: the attached PKGBUILD provides the fix.

Additional info:
* package version(s) : 5.4.1-1

This task depends upon
