You need to run the installed perl-after-upgrade.  From an arbitrary
directory, run perl-after-upgrade, check for errors and if all is OK,
run "perl-after-upgrade -f", then check for leftovers.  See the
perl-after-upgrade manpage for more details.

perl is waiting for you to enter a perl script.  Try (eg) 'perl -V'.

Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
