The package perl-mime-tools in [Extra] was required by the
amavisd-new.While starting amavisd,the error below has occured.

> fetch_modules: error loading optional module MIME/Decoder/BinHex.pm:
> Can't locate Convert/BinHex.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1 /usr/share/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl /usr/lib/perl5/current/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/current /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/current) at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/MIME/Decoder/BinHex.pm line 43.

And then,i check the code of
/usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/MIME/Decoder/BinHex.pm on line 43,the
following code indicate that perl module Convert BinHex is needed.

> use Convert::BinHex;

I also checked the same debian package in
http://packages.debian.org/en/sid/libmime-tools-perl,and the
perl-convert-binhex was absolutely the dependency.

Now,the perl-convert-binhex is in AUR,so please fix the PKGBUILD of
perl-mime-tools and move perl-convert-binhex into offical repo.

I have fill out a bug about this in FS#23144,hope someone can solve
this problem.
