Ok. If I explicitly remove libarchive-tar-perl, then the new perl 5.10 packages will install without issue.

this bug was present when i tried to do an dist-upgrade from hardy to intrepid by replacing in apt/sources.list

but with upgrade manager upgrade worked until the end

Debian resolution looks correct. perl-modules 5.10+ needs to conflict/replace libarchive-tar-perl.
