Bug description:
  pbuilder fails to create a precise builder image (has been failing
  this way for me for past week or two at least):

  $ sudo DIST=precise ARCH=i386 pbuilder create --distribution precise
  Reading package lists...
  I: Obtaining the cached apt archive contents
  Reading package lists...
  Building dependency tree...
  You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
  The following packages have unmet dependencies:
   perl : Depends: perl-modules (>= 5.14.2-5) but 5.12.4-6 is installed
  E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
  I: unmounting /var/cache/pbuilder/ccache filesystem
  I: unmounting dev/pts filesystem
  I: unmounting proc filesystem
  I: cleaning the build env
  I: removing directory /var/cache/pbuilder/build//11957 and its subdirectories

  I gather that perl-modules is a binary package of the perl source
  package, so perhaps it is really a perl or apt issue, but am not
  certain at this point.

  Detailed log attached.
