This was an oversight on my part, rather than deliberate.  I rebuilt the 
package for perl 5.30, and then again for perl 5.32.

... and you seem to have taken care of all these.

If you are agreeable, I'll add a perl5_026 requirement to the other 
packages listed.

This will make setup refuse to install them, since the requirement can't 
be satisfied (and uninstall them if they are already installed), which 
is hopefully no great loss, as they probably can't result in a working 
installation since perl-5.26 was expired from the release area, anyhow.

I'll also add that requirement to any old perl 5.26-era versions of perl 
distribution packages we still have in the relarea.
