I don't think so, no. libpetal-perl builds okay for me on squeeze.
The referenced bug mentions the change in 2.27:
- Wrap coderefs returned by reval() and rdo()
(the change we're applying in this bug).
I think the opinion of the perl maintainers is that we shouldn't worry
about that package too much, but I guess that's a call for the security
squeeze packages fixing this bug are ready to upload; lenny packages
need a little more work to get the tests passing again.
