After plowing through this thread, I am replying to say that the
library in question belongs to perl-scalar-list-utils which can be
found in AUr.  It is required by other packages like
perl-eval-closure.  It is all part of a long list of cascading
dependencies for perl-moos and perl-net-twitter.

One other thing I observe with this package is that
perl-scalar-list-utils has a 'replaces' entry, replacing
perl-scalar-utils; I don't see that name in any repos nor my system at
the moment.
