Sort of, now that you say it… the test version of perl does require
perl_base as a dependency, but that requirement also carries to all
other versions unfortunately.  I'll upload an empty package for current.

As for perl_autorebase, it does not matter which version you install and
the perl_autorebase-001001-1 package will be removed soon.
