Yeah, I figure this package replaced that one.  Anyway, it contains
the library that is causing my problems.  I wouldn't mind merely
removing this package but then the packages requiring
perl-scalar-list-utils will start complaining so I feel like I might
be getting trapped in dependency hell.  If that library is indeed a
part of other standard packages, then at least automake should start
working again.
